Madonna’s Birthday – level 3
American entertainer Madonna was born on 16th August, 1958 in Bay City, Michigan, meaning that she celebrated her 60th birthday last week.
Her career in the music industry started at the age of 17 when she dropped out of college, left home and moved to New York. There she performed in several underground bands, but she later signed a contract with record label Sire Records in 1982.
This marked the beginning of her 40-year career, producing hits such as ‘Like a Virgin’, ‘Papa Don’t Preach’, ‘Vogue’ and ‘Ray of Light’. During her ongoing career, she sold over 300 million records and is the most successful female solo artist of all time.
Madonna married twice to Hollywood actor Sean Penn and director Guy Ritchie. She has six children, four of them that she adopted from Malawi.
