Vanessa-Mae (born 27 October 1978),is a British violinist with album sales reaching several million, having made her the wealthiest entertainer under 30 in the United Kingdom in 2006.
She competed under the name Vanessa Vanakorn for Thailand in alpine skiing at the 2014 Winter Olympics. She was later banned from skiing because a qualifying race for her benefit was alleged to be corrupt but the Court of Arbitration for Sport nullified the ban, citing lack of evidence for her own wrongdoing or any manipulation.
Vanessa-Mae became notable in the United Kingdom in her childhood making regular appearances on television (such as Blue Peter) mostly involving classical music and conservative style.
She made her international professional debut at age ten in 1988 at the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival in Germany, and the same year made her concerto debut on stage with the Philharmonia Orchestra in London.
At age thirteen, she became the youngest soloist to record both the Beethoven and Tchaikovsky violin concertos, according to Guinness World Records.
After entering her teens, Vanessa-Mae broke away from her traditional classical influences and became known for her more distinct appearance, appearing in music videos in more stylised outfits. Her first pop-style album, The Violin Player, was released in 1995. She appeared on the 1997 Janet Jackson album The Velvet Rope playing a violin solo on the song “Velvet Rope”.
She was managed by her mother until Vanessa-Mae fired her in 1999.
