Kevin's STAR Cause:
In the small town of Weiser, Idaho, Kevin Sharp grew up one of seven children. Throughout his formative school years, Kevin flourished as a promising athlete. In his late teens, however, he began to feel unusually fatigued; soon after, he received news that he had Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare bone cancer, and was given only a few months to live.
Fortunately, destiny would have another way; some people from the Make-A-Wish foundation met Kevin at his bedside and asked if he could have one with granted, what would that be? Kevin wished to meet producer and songwriter David Foster (who has worked with the likes of Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, and many more!). Kevin's wish was granted, and it not only led the way for a long-time friendship with the famed music mogul, but also to his first record contract. Kevin has been in remission since 1991.
Musically, he released his first album in 1996, and his debut single "Nobody Knows" was only the start to a successful run of hit singles and album. Other fan favorites include "She Sure Taking It Well," "If You Love Somebody" and has helped Kevin become a multi-platinum selling artist. Two years and two albums later, however, Kevin found himself in the midst of his label folding, leaving him without a musical home. Doubting his chances of ever making another record, he focused his time and attention to passing on the life lessons he's learned to others by touring the nation as a motivational speaker. The years since his remission have not erased the endless nights filled with pain, worry, and fear that emerged from his experiences in enduring his diagnosis and its aftermath; but Kevin has also never forgotten the hope that the Make-A-Wish foundation gave him. He continues to serve as spokeman for the organization, and he even had the Make-A-Wish logo tattooed onto his chest as a personal reminder for what he fought through to get to where he is now. In late 2004, Kevin released his book Tragedy's Gift, which recounts all the turmoils that he has experienced both in his personal life and with his music career.
Newly signed to Cupit Records, Kevin has released a new album titled Make A Wish on which he penned the title track. With the singles "Your Love Reaches Me" and "I Think I'll Stay" at radio, he is back where country fans want him to be - on the charts and in their hearts!
