Irene Cara

Four years after starring in the classic kids show Electric Company, Irene Cara landed the breakout character role in Sparkle. The actress and singer made her mark mostly through music, singing the classic themes for the films Fame (1981) and Flashdance (1983), for which she won a Best Original Song Oscar.
