Corey Mitchell Hart is a Grammy Award-nominated Canadian musician. He was raised in Montreal, Spain, Mexico City, and Key Biscayne, Florida, and was raised solely by his mother from the age of 10 . Hart was a prodigy as a teenager. At 13, he sang for Tom Jones and recorded with Paul Anka in Las Vegas and, at 19, recorded demos with Billy Joel and Eric Clapton before signing to a major label at the age of 20.

Corey Hart's first album was recorded in Manchester, England in the spring of 1982. Released in 1983, First Offense, featured the hit songs "Sunglasses at Night" and "It Ain't Enough". The album sold well in both Canada and the United States. The follow-up album was Boy in the Box in 1985 featuring the smash "Never Surrender," which was Hart's highest-charting single. Hart became so popular, particularly amongst adolescents, that he was offered the role of Marty McFly in the film Back to the Future, which he turned down. Hart's handsome looks made an impression on young fans; so much, in fact, that he was regularly featured in magazines marketed to teens, such as Tiger Beat and Bop, from 1984 to 1986.
