About the author

Biography of Crow, Sheryl

Sheryl Suzanne Crow was born in Kennett, Missouri on February 11, 1962. She enrolled at the University of Missouri, in Columbia, and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Composition, Performance, and Education. While in college, Crow sang in a local band, Cashmere. She was a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta social sorority, Sigma Alpha Iota International Music Fraternity for Women, and the Omicron Delta Kappa Society. Later, Crow was awarded an honorary doctorate from the Southeast Missouri State University, in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

After graduating from college, Crow worked as a music teacher at the Kellison elementary school, in Fenton, Missouri. Teaching during the day allowed her the opportunity to sing in bands on weekends. Later, she was introduced to local musician and producer Jay Oliver. He had a thriving studio in the basement of his parents' home, in St. Louis, and helped her by using her in advertising jingles. Her first jingle was a back-to-school spot for the St.

Louis department store Famous-Barr. McDonald's and Toyota commercial jingles soon followed. Crow toured with Michael Jackson as a backup vocalist during his Bad World Tour from 1987 - 1989, and often performed with Jackson on "I Just Can't Stop Loving You". She also recorded background vocals for performances from various established artists including Stevie Wonder, Belinda Carlisle and Don Henley. Her song All I Wanna Do became an unexpected smash hit in the spring of 1994. The singles "Strong Enough" and "Can't Cry Anymore" were also released, with the first song "Strong Enough" charting at #5 on Billboard and "Can't Cry Anymore" hitting the Top 40. In 1996, Crow released her self titled second album.

The album had songs about abortion, homelessness and nuclear war. The debut single, "If It Makes You Happy", became a radio success and netted her two Grammy awards for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance and Best Rock Album. Some of her other albums include Globe Sessions and Live. Sheryl Crow has recently authored a cookbook entitled If it Makes You Healthy: More Than 100 Delicious Recipes Inspired by the Seasons. This title made Publisher's Weekly Best Sellers List in April 2011.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2011-02-11)

Rock/country star Crow teams up with chef White in this readable cookbook filled with friendly asides, photos, and insights into the life of a popular musician in the studio and on the road. Most of the main dish recipes feature meat, with some tofu options, and many side dishes are vegetarian or vegan. Frequent side notes along with comments between and within recipes guide novice cooks and demonstrate an easygoing attitude toward substituting ingredients and tailoring recipes to individual tastes.

The healthy focus is largely in response to Crow's breast cancer, and some readers may be surprised that the recipes do not include calorie counts or a nutritional breakdown. Many of the comments tout the anticancer properties of certain foods and encourage readers to shop locally and buy products from farms using humane animal methods and organic farming techniques.

Verdict: An enjoyable cookbook for browsers of many tastes. Readers will feel they have shared a bit of Crow's life along with the recipes from her table.

Rock star. Activist. Mother of two. How does Sheryl Crow have time to keep so healthy and fit? Sheryl knows how to eat right and deliciously thanks to personal chef Chuck White, affectionately known as “Chef Chuck.” The duo met while Sheryl was battling breast cancer, which for her, was a wake-up call to eat better.

Since then, Chuck has taught Sheryl how to do just that by cooking foods that are seasonal, locally grown, and vitamin-rich to keep her on top of her game and always ready to perform.
