Meet Danish Singer, Songwriter and Producer Ida Corr

Ida Corr was born in Århus is a Danish singer, songwriter and music producer.

In 2004 Corr collaborated with house producer Morten Trust on “I Put My Faith in You,” a moderately popular dance hit on MoHo Records. She rose to fame in her native Denmark in 2005 with the release of her debut album ‘Streetdiva’ and in 2006 with her follow up album ‘Robosoul’. After creating a special song as part of the Live Earth set of international music concerts, her popularity began to spread outside of her homeland. The song, entitled ‘Mirror 07-07-07’, was played at exactly seven minutes past the seventh hour of the seventh day of the seventh month of 2007.

In 2007 she received exposure in the Netherlands due to her work with Dutch DJ Fedde le Grand, and her most recent self-written single, remixed by Fedde le Grand, ‘Let Me Think About It’ spread to wider Europe quickly. It is the best-selling single outside Denmark from a Danish singer since the Danish bands Aqua and Infernal. In 2008 Ida released the compilation album “One” in Scandinavia. The single ‘Let Me Think About It’ continued its success and reached Nr. 1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Airplay. “One” was released in the United States on August 26, 2008 as the first release on the new founded label “Ministry of Sound US”.

Ida Corr is also member of the band called “SugaRush Beat Company”, that has performed on Later with Jools Holland with a debut album being released in August 2008.
