IMG will rep pop music group

Sports agency IMG has expanded its entertainment practice by signing its first rock/pop music client, the Irish four-piece band The Corrs, for endorsement, sponsorship and music licensing work.

The group, sisters Andrea, Caroline and Sharon and their brother, Jim Corr, has sold more than 27 million albums worldwide since its 1995 debut.

IMG's clients include Tiger Woods, Venus and Serena Williams, Derek Jeter, Vince Carter and Peyton Manning.
