When you think of women who rock, you can't help but think of Ann Wilson. Today the legendary Heart singer celebrates a birthday!
Wilson, along with her sister Nancy, became iconic in the music industry by proving that the world of Rock and Roll wouldn't be the same without female rockers.
In 1976, Heart took the world by storm with their debut album, Dream Boat Annie, which spent 100 weeks on the music charts and featured hot singles like “Magic Man” and “Crazy on You.”
After their first album Heart’s success continued with a number of chart-topping records and hits, selling more than 35 million albums, including their latest LP Fanatic, which was released last year.
Aside from Heart, Wilson and her powerhouse voice also appeared on movie soundtracks including Footloose, The Golden Child and Tequila Sunrise, also releasing a solo album titled Hope & Glory in 2007.
But for all the Heart fans out there, there’s no need to worry, because the band is still going strong. Heart is currently in the middle of a Canadian tour, with tour dates in the U.S. scheduled for later this summer.
