Classical soprano Sarah Brightman, who originated the role of Christine Daaé in the long-running Andrew Lloyd Webber musical The Phantom of the Opera, celebrates her birthday Aug. 14.

In celebration of Brightman's birthday, we take a look back at the award-winning artist's career, which includes musical appearances on Broadway, in the West End and at the Olympic games, among others.

Brightman made her West End musical theatre debut in the Olivier and Tony Award-winning musical Cats, where she met composer Lloyd Webber, whom she married in 1984. Although Brightman played the role of Jemima in Cats, here she sings an Italian version of "Memory," which is performed in the musical by Grizabella.
