Soon after joining the school, the girls were invited to join the Brent St Kids performance troupe and began singing and dancing all over Sydney. It was through this exposure that they attracted the attention of Tina Arena who saw their performance at the Variety Club Heart Awards. Arena mentioned the girls to her now former manager/husband. He later signed them to his management company and new record label in 1997.
After relocating to Melbourne to write their first album, the name Sister2Sister was born. It was at this time Sharon also studied at the Victorian College of Arts. After touring extensively through the U.S., UK and Europe, Sharon and Christine returned home to Sydney and decided to turn back to a previous passion and re-enter the world of television. They were VJ's on MTV's Australian Top 30 for 18 months.
