Early yearsEdit

Cornelia Schütt was born in Heiligenberg (Baden-Württemberg, Germany). Two months after her birth, she relocated to Cap-Haïtien, Haiti, where she spent her years growing up.[1] Born to German parents from Berlin, her father Carl Otto Schütt, at the age of 18, joined the family business in Cap-Haïtien that was in operation since 1832 and made frequent trips back and forth from Germany. After returning from an intern camp in the United States after World War II, he returned to Germany and met Corneilia' mother, Ingrid, an educated architect. She moved with him to Haiti to attend the Coffee farm.[5][7] She received her nickname "TiCorn" ("Ti" is a colloquialism of the French word "petite," or "small" - thus "Small Corn[elia]") from her nanny Anna Colo, which she grew up with in Haiti.[1][5][8]

CareerEdit

TiCorn released her first LP in 1979, titled "Haïti." She also played a singing role in the German film, Caribia. Although she does not consider herself an actress.[5]
