Sharon Bryant (born August 14, 1956, Westchester County, New York) is an American R&B singer. She began her career as the lead singer of the R&B group Atlantic Starr in 1976.

Career[edit]

Bryant sang lead on songs such as "When Love Calls" and "Circles". She left the group in pursuit of a solo career in 1984, and had moderate solo success with that effort.[1] She would not achieve success on her own again until five years later, when the ballad "Foolish Heart" reached the top ten on Billboard's R&B chart. Another major R&B hit from the accompanying self-titled album, "Let Go" was also a moderate pop hit, cracking the top 40 on the pop charts (at #34)[2] and charting at #37 on Radio & Records Magazine's Top 100.

In 2013, Bryant appeared as a background vocalist on Empire of the Sun's second album Ice on the Dune on the song "Keep a Watch".[3][4]
