Before becoming a full-time musician, Sharon worked for a fashion company. After the success of Ice Queen she was forced to leave her job. However, she still designs Within Temptation's merchandising and costumes. [3]

Sharon Den Adel has performed on-stage and in the studio with several notable metal bands, including Aemen, After Forever, De Heideroosjes, and Delain. She sang the part of Anna Held in Tobias Sammet's Avantasia projects, and the part of the "Indian" on Ayreon's rock opera Into the Electric Castle. She sang the vocals of one Timo Tolkki song, Are You The One? She also co-wrote and provided the vocals for the track called "In And Out Of Love" from Armin van Buuren's 2008 album "Imagine".
