Interview with Ahmet Ertegun

The entry for The Corrs in the biography booklet is as follows:

The international phenomenon that is The Corrs is proof that the Atlantic organisation built by Ahmet Ertegun is as perceptive and flexible today as at any time in its history.   When an Irish quartet with roots in traditional folk arrived at the label's New York office for an audition in 1994, it took a leap of faith to imagine that they would become worldwide pop stars.  Producer and A&R man David Foster took up the challenge, and the family quartet quickly repaid Atlantic's belief in them.  Their hit single 'What Can I Do' multiplied the audience across the globe for their music, and demonstrated that the creative vision of Ahmet Ertegun and his original Atlantic team is still flourishing today.
