Tina Ann Barrett (born 16 September 1976) is a Londonmarker based singer-songwriter. Her major breakthrough came in 1999, at the age of 22 when she became a member of the extremely successful and very popular pop group/band, S Club 7 where she enjoyed five years of hit singles, arena tours and awards, including two Brit Awards.

Background

At first, Tina had plans to be a ballerina. She started ballet classes as soon as she could walk. She was at Londonmarker's Arts Educational School for a period of eight years. Her first job was dancing in a pantomime with Lionel Blair.

S Club (7)

Barrett became a member of S Club 7 after a series of auditions along with members Paul Cattermole, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O'Meara, Hannah Spearritt and Rachel Stevens in 1999.. She was the oldest member of the group, and they enjoyed five years of enormous success, including four number one singles and one number one album. They also had a series of TV shows, which were: Miami 7, L.A. 7, Hollywood 7 and Viva S Club, and they also starred in a film, Seeing Double. Barrett led some of the tracks on the groups' albums, such as "I'll Be There" and "Stronger". Stronger was set to be a single, but was cancelled when Paul Cattermole left the group. The six remaining members stayed together until 2003, when they split after releasing their greatest hits album.

2003-2009

She kept a relatively low profile for about six years after the split. When S Club first announced they were to break up, she expressed interest in working on a solo career. However, there was no information about Barrett beginning a career as a solo artist.

In 2004, Barrett, along with singers Natasha Beddingfield and Atomic Kitten member Liz McClarnon, recorded a single, a cover of Do Ya Think I'm Sexy? by Rod Stewart. She also released some solo tracks on the internet, such as "I Wanna", "I'll Be Your Woman", "Love Sick", "All Fired Up", "Loving the Enemy", "Making Me Dance", "Blow My Mind" and "Satisfy Me".

Solo Career

Barrett is currently recording her debut solo album, which is expected to be released in 2010. She performed one track live.

S Club Reunion

In 2008, it was reported that Barrett has joined the newly reformed S Club 5, along with Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Paul Cattermole and Jo O'Meara, but neither Lee or Barrett performed with the group, making it S Club 3, which has been active from November 2008.
