Sarah Brightman’s name is synonymous with the synthesis of academic and popular music named Classical Crossover that is created and developed by her for 25 years. She begun her career as the star of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Cats” and “The Phantom of the Opera”, at the late 80’ she started her solo career. It has evolved so successfully that both – academic and popular music fans and critics measure her talent.
 
Since the beginning of her solo career, she has released 11 solo albums, 4 compilations, with a total circulation more than 30 million copies, and 7 DVD’s with the circulation of 2 millions. Brightman’s records have been awarded with 180 Gold and Platinum discs in more than 40 countries. Her duet with Andrea Bocelli “Time To Say Goodby” is included in the Guiness Book of Records as the all-time best-selling single in Germany. U.S. Recording Industry Association has recognized Sarah Brightman as the all-time most successful academic perfomer. 
 
Sarah Brightman’s vocal has been evaluated with countless awards and nominations, including Grammy, Echo and Golden Lion.

In 2015 she’s planning on going to the International Space Station becoming the first singer and delegate of all the entertainment industry that’s visiting outer space.
 
Critics have acclaimed this album as the stongest proof of Sarah Brightman’s career, highlighting the highly successful and well-considered choice of composition, that’s made very special by her vocal quality. For example, Stephen Unwin of The Daily Express wrote that the album is "an almost surreal, often heartbreaking record that is stirringly epic". Similarly The Sun (United Kingdom) in a 5-star review described the album as "much more original and involving than standard popera fare". Polari Magazine in another 5-star review described the album as "stunning" and continued that "instead of playing it safe and releasing yet another Mother's Day Opera-By-Numbers album like most classical singers, Sarah’s general lunacy helps her to take risks most artists in her genre wouldn’t take".
 
Tour “Dreamchaser” has unfolded as Sarah Brightman’s most abitious series of concerts since the tour of album “Harem” in 2004. She has done 67 concerts in USA alone, most of them was sold out unbelievably fast. In this tour Sarah will visit countries as United Arab Emirates and Qatar, where she hasn’t been yet.
