Leona Lewis: April 03, 1985

The example of Leona Lewis shows that you can become a music star when you take part in casting shows: She won the X Factor show in 2006 because of her unique voice and signed after that a contract with Sony BMG. After her X Factor triumph, her single “A Moment Like This” recieved the first position in the single charts in Great Britain. And Lewis’ career continued: Her second single “Bleeding Love” also recieved the first position in the UK Top 40 one year later. Her album “Spirit” from 2008 went platinum several times. A further success was her “Echo” album that became the number one in the British album charts. By the way, the song “I See You” in the Avatar movie is by Leona Lewis.

Pharrell Williams: April 05, 1973

You can be more successful when you produce songs for other musicians than when you do it for yourself. The US musician and songwriter Pharrell Williams is an appropriate example: He met Chad Hugo in the High Shool. In the 1990’s and the 2000’s, they called themselves “The Neptunes” and produced songs for Britney Spears (“I’m a Slave 4 U”), Jay Z (“I Just Wanna Love U (Give it to Me)” and others. Additionally, he wrote lyrics for Shakira, Jennifer Lopez and Usher among others. 

At the beginning of the 2000’s, many songs featured in the British radio were by Pharrell Williams and that was rewarded with a Grammy Award for the producer of the year. Williams and Hugo performed as a band, but they did not have success. Furthermore, Williams became known for his song “Happy”, a soundtrack for the animated film ”Despicable Me 2”.

Robert Smith (The Cure): April 21, 1959

Robert Smith is the lead singer of the British band “The Cure” that was created in 1977. Its original name was “Easy Cure” when Smith decided to found a band with his classmates after having performed in a school band at the age of 14. In contrast to the other members of “The Cure”, Robert Smith is the only member who did not leave it through all the years.  

In 1983, three songs of “The Cure” ranked first in the charts: “The Walk”, “Let’s Go to Bed” and “The Lovecats”. “The Cure” released numerous albums, including “Seventeen Seconds” (1980) and “Faith” (1981). Smith who always wears dark clothes and has a characteristic make up, is enormously gifted: He plays lots of musical instruments, including the bass guitar, the violin, the trumpet and the piano.

Barbra Streisand: April 24, 1942

Like Liza Minnelli, Barbra Streisand has a special position in the world of music as she used her singing talent not only for a music career but also for a career as an actress. 

In 1962, she debuted in the Broadway show “I Can Get It For You Wholesale” and received the New York Drama Critic’s prize for Best Supporting Actress. One year later, she was rewarded with two Grammy Awards for her “The Barbra Streisand Album”. In 1968, Streisand was honored with an Oscar for “Funny Girl”, a Broadway show, and in 1976 with an Oscar and a Grammy for the movie “A Star is Born”. The song “Evergreen” from the latter and the theme song from “The Way We Were” became number one hits. 

All in all, Barbra Streisand released eleven albums that ranked first, “People” (1964), “Guilty” (1980) and “Partners” (2014) were among others.
