    Biography

    Born: June 20, 1945 Murray grew up with five brothers and
    the only daughter of a physician James Carson Murray and
    his wife Marion Margaret, a trained nurse.

    She enjoyed pop and folk music while in high school and in
    1964, when in her second year at the University of New
    Brunswick (where she received a degree in physical
    education), she auditioned for the CBC-TV show Singalong
    Jubilee. She didn"t get the job, since there were enough altos
    in the cast, but co-host and associate producer Bill Langstroth
    tracked her down two years later and convinced her to join
    the show.

    Giving up her brief career as a physical education teacher,
    Murray has never looked back. She married Langstroth in
    1975, settled in Toronto.

    Her first album was "What About Me", released in 1968 on the
    little Canadian Arc label. Her first big hits were "Snowbird", in
    1970 (on "This Is My Way") and "Danny"s Song", in 1973
    (on "Danny"s Song).

    Her worldwide album sales are in excess of 24 million and her
    records have attained multi-platinum status in North America
    and Australia, and silver status in the UK. "You Needed Me"
    was No. 1 in Malaysia for 10 straight weeks and won her a
    Grammy in 1978.

    There have been 4 Grammys in total, three American Music
    Awards, three Country Music Association Awards, three
    Canadian Country Music Association Awards, 25 Juno Awards,
    and was inducted into the Juno Hall of Fame in 1993.

    In November of 1995, Anne was presented with the
    prestigious Governor General"s Award, which is given to
    Canadians of "extraordinary talent and accomplishment." She
    is a Companion of the Order of Canada, has been inducted
    into Nashville"s Walkway of Stars, has her own star at
    Hollywood and Vine in Los Angeles, and in 1989 the Anne
    Murray Centre opened in her hometown of Springhill, N.S.

    She"s performed for capacity crowds at venues such as
    Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall in New York City, The
    Palladium in London, England, and the Royal Alexandra
    Theatre in Toronto, and Murray has opened in Vegas while
    Frank Sinatra played across the street.
    .
    Over the years her many CBS and CBC television specials
    have reached millions of fans the world over. In 1996 Murray
    released her 30th, and self-titled, LP on EMI and recorded a
    TV special for the CBC based on guest appearances featured
    on the disc by Bryan Adams, and Jann Arden among others.
