Sonia appeared on the ITV show "Reborn In The USA" where she famously clashed with seventies sparklers Dollar.
In 2007, a Greatest Hits album was released - an album that mysteriously omitted all of Sonia's Stock, Aitken, Waterman era material.
Sonia continues to tour and make TV appearances. Her stage and screen career has included stints in the West End ('Grease' alongside Shane Richie) and on the BBC sitcome 'Bread'. Sonia was also famously parodied by Dawn French in the 'Star Test' section of the French & Saunders show.

Sonia Evans (born February 13, 1971), better known as just Sonia, is an English pop singer from Liverpool, who was popular in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Her singing career was launched by the music producing trio Stock Aitken Waterman in 1989. She was signed after badgering Pete Waterman to listen to her sing outside the recording studio in Liverpool. Evans has her soft husky bartitonal contralto voice. Waterman did a regular weekly radio broadcast. He called her bluff and had her sing live on his show, and she later had several hits in the UK Singles Chart over the following years, including the UK number one single "You'll Never Stop Me Loving You" and a hit "You've Got a Friend" (credited to Big Fun & Sonia featuring Gary Barnacle), plus some other Top 20 hit singles, including "Can't Forget You" and "You To Me Are Everything".
She also sang the Dean Collinson and Red composition "Better The Devil You Know" for Britain in the 1993 Eurovision Song Contest, where she finished in second place.
In 2003, Evans took part in the reality television show Reborn in the USA, but was voted off in its fifth week.
In January 2007 she starred in the pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk, as Jack in Horsham, West Sussex, alongside Mark Currie.
Sonia Rutstein, a.k.a. SONiA, is one half of the sister duo Disappear Fear, an American folk/power pop band formed in Baltimore in 1987. They released four albums, then in 1996, Cindy Rutstein ceased playing regularly with the band in order to become a mother but occasionally still performs with them. Sonia Rutstein started a solo career (as "SONiA"). Her lyrics often address GLBT rights and other progressive political causes. Her 2004 CD No Bomb Is Smart was nominated for a Grammy, in spite of, or perhaps because of its outspoken opposition to current US foreign policy. Since its release, she has been campaigning as a recording artist against SoundExchange's (and RIAA's) efforts to dramatically increase fees to small webcasters. Her website http://www.soniadf.com has more information on all the above projects. SONiA's most recent solo album is http://www.last.fm/music/Sonia+Rutstein/No+Bomb+Is+Smart.
