Well let's look at this as an imformative topic similiar to DoF's FAQ....Very Happy

Here's my input:

Quote :
Together with partner Robert Westerholt, Sharon is one of the founding members of Dutch symphonic metal band Within Temptation. She has defined their work as epic, and cinematic [1]. Her soprano vocals play a major role in the band's sound, but she "never really had vocal training, I taught myself just listening and practicing songs I liked myself" [2].

Before becoming a full-time musician, Sharon worked for a fashion company, and Robert worked in human resource management. After the success of "Ice Queen," they were forced to leave their jobs. However, Sharon still puts her design expertise to good use, saying, "I have always designed our merchandise. It was something I did for fun and because I have this background. Iíve also arranged the clothing for myself and the other band members. I work with a designer. I like to draw it myself, but donít want to make the dress or the t-shirt. I have somebody else make it. I just draw it, and finish it up with a designer. Iíll ask the guys what they like for comfort, because comfort is very important when you are on stage. And I know what their tastes are. Itís very easy for me to buy stuff for them or design things myself for them" [3].

She has stated that her most embarrassing moment with Within Temptation was "the time I couldn't get out of my dress during a dress-change in the middle of a gig. I was backstage changing into another outfit and the zipper didn't want to open. The rest of the band played the intro already three times and I had no choice than to go on stage again with the same dress with the back half-opened and me trying to keep it closed while head-banging and singing. After that song I explained what had happened because everyone expected that something was going on and I got a big applause. With a little bit of tape to keep the dress in place, I continued the show" [4].


Taken from her article on wikipedia (I checked to make sure it was accurate)

Lol. That'd be kick ass.

"Hey guys"
"Hi..."
"You asked if I was coming...Here I am"
"Lol"
"What?"
"Impostor!!!"

Yeah...I don't know if that would go over well. xD

That is weird. Ooh! You know what you should do? Call up your grandma and be like, "I think there's someone I need to wish a happy birthday" And as she says "Aw, thank you", you cut her off and say, "Sharon den Adel!"

And then of course explain that you were joking and wish her a happy birthday. Razz

EDIT: Oh crap. You said great-grandmother. Heh. I don't even know if she's still alive. Oops. :oops: It'd still be funny though....
