Gwen Stefani: October 3rd, 1969
The American singer, songwriter, fashion designer and actress became known as the only female member of the band No Doubt. Gwen Stefani has sold more than 40 million records worldwide.
Gwen Stefani's brother, Eric, suggested to her to sing some vocals for the band No Doubt, which was just being formed. Gwen Stefani took over the role of the frontwoman after the suicide of the band founder John Spence. With the first studio album Tragic Kingdom and the singles "Just a Girl", "Hey Baby", "It's My Life" and "Don’t Speak" the band reached their breakthrough. Gwen, therefore, only stopped her studies at university during one semester to tour with the band. However, when the tour for the promotion of the success album ended only after two and a half years, Gwen did not return to the university. More than 16 million records of The Tragic Kingdom have been sold.
In 2004, Gwen Stefani started a solo career with the debut album "Love. Angel. Music. Baby". Songs like "What You Waiting For?", "Rich Girl" or "Hollaback Girl" were inspired by the pop music of the 1980s. In 2006, the second solo album featured tracks such as "The Sweet Escape" or "Wind It Up". The third album "This Is What the Truth Feels Like" was released in 2016. With the rapper Eve, she released "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" in 2001, which was very sucessful.
