"Blue Bayou," became her major hit at that time
Singer Linda Ronstadt was born on July 15, 1946, in Tucson, Arizona, and grew up surrounded by music. One of Ronstadt's early musical influences was the Mexican songs her father taught her and her siblings. Her mother played the ukulele and her father played the guitar. Following in her father's footsteps, she learned to play guitar, and performed with her brother and sister as a trio.
While a student at Catalina High School, Ronstadt met local folk musician Bob Kimmel. A few years her senior, Kimmel moved to Los Angeles to pursue his music career, and tried to convince Ronstadt to do the same. She stayed put and enrolled at the University of Arizona in Tucson, but soon left school to join Kimmel in L.A.
Ronstadt and Kimmel teamed up with Kenny Edwards to form the Stone Poneys, and the folk trio released their first album in 1967. The group enjoyed modest success with their second album, Evergreen Vol. 2, which was also released in 1967. However, their only hit was "Different Drum," which was written by Michael Nesmith of the Monkees.

He helped expand the popularity of opera worldwide
Luciano Pavarotti, known for his larger-than-life showmanship that helped expand the popularity of opera, was born on October 12, 1935, on the outskirts of Modena in north-central Italy. The son of a baker and amateur singer, Pavarotti's family was crowded into a two-room apartment. By 1943, World War II had forced the family into a rented single room in the countryside.
Pavarotti wanted to be a soccer star, but found himself enjoying his father's recordings, featuring the popular tenors of the day such as Bjoerling, Tito Schipa and his favorite, Giuseppe Di Stefano. At around the age of 9, he began singing with his father in a small local church choir. He also studied singing with childhood friend Mirella Freni, who later became a star soprano.
At age 20, Pavarotti traveled with a chorus from his hometown to an international music competition in Wales. The group won first place.
Pavarotti abandoned a career in school-teaching to dedicate his life to singing. He won the international competition at the Teatro Reggio Emilia in 1961, making his operatic debut there as "Rodolfo" in La Boheme on April 29. He made his international debut in 1963, when he stepped in for tenor Giuseppe Di Stefano in the role of Rodolfo at the Royal Opera House in London.
Pavarotti then took part in the La Scala tour of Europe (1963-64). His American debut in February 1965, in the Miami production of Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor, also launched his legendary partnership with Australian soprano Joan Sutherland. It was with Sutherland that Pavarotti took London's Covent Garden and the New York Metropolitan Opera by storm in 1972 with a sparkling production of a Donizetti favorite, La Fille du Regiment.
Pavarotti's voice and performance were very much in the powerful style of the traditional Italian tenor. He quickly became internationally known as a concert performer, achieving a large following due to his many recordings and television appearances.
In 1982, Pavarotti appeared in the film Yes, Giorgio. That same year, he published a volume of an autobiography.

Who was the voice of Queen?
In 1973, the band released their first self-titled album, but it took two more recordings for Queen's music to really catch on. Their third record, Sheer Heart Attack (1974), featured their first hit, "Killer Queen," a song about a high-class call girl. The single hit No. 2 on the U.K. charts, and peaked at No. 12 in the U.S.
With a sound that has been described as a fusion of hard rock and glam rock, Queen had an even bigger hit the following year with their album, A Night at the Opera (1975). Mercury wrote the song "Bohemian Rhapsody," a seven-minute rock operetta, for the album. Overdubbing his voice, Mercury showed off his impressive four-octave vocal range on this innovative track. The song hit the top of the charts in Britain and became a Top 10 hit in the United States.
In addition to his talents as a singer and songwriter, Mercury was also a skilled showman. He knew how to entertain audiences and how to connect with them. He liked to wear costumes—often featuring skintight spandex—and strutted around the stage, encouraging fans to join in the fun. Artistic in nature, Mercury was also actively involved in designing the art for many of the group's albums.

He made his first appearance with the Hamburg Philharmonics at the age of ten.
At the age of thirteen he was the youngest artist to sign an exclusive contract with the Deutsche Grammophon Gesellschaft. In 1999, at the prime of his young career he decided to put everything on hold and move to New York in order to study musicology and composition at the prestigious Julliard School. To pay for his studies he worked as a bartender, a janitor and a library clerk before he was discovered by a modeling agency. At Julliard he was taught by the likes of Itzhak Perlmann and Eric Ewazen. In 2003 he won the Composition Competition of Julliard School with a fugue composed in the style of Johann Sebastian Bach.
After completing his studies he started a new career as a crossover violinist attempting to breach the often wide gap between the new generations of young people and classic music. In 2006 the record company Decca released his first crossover album "Free" (also known under the title "Virtuoso" by the record company DEAG), which contained classics such as the "Flight of the Bumblebee" by Rimsky-Korsakov and Paganini's "Caprice n° 24", as well as a remake of Metallica's "Nothing else matters".

Música venezolana de Luis Silva @luissilvatwitt
Voy a dedicar mi canto a mi patria y mi bandera
sabana q tanto quiero hijas de tierras llaneras.
Esteros y morichales caminos y tolvaneras
con la compañía sagrada del cuarto y arpa llanera.
Mi llano que lindo eres que lindo es el ser llanero
llanura q me has parido y que te quiero de veras
permíteme que te diera de mi canta una pajarillo
Pajarillo pajarillo que cantas por donde quieras
vamos a unir el cantar pa cantarle a Venezuela la
tierra que pare machos y no se dan donde quieran
de esos que a riegan la vida cuando toca defenderla
como hizo bolívar el que libertador fuera que lucho
a capa y espada por defender un nuestra tierra nosotros
que no podemos hacerlo como el lo hiciera vamos hacerlo
cantado pero con voz altanera que retumben los caminos
que recorran las fronteras para amante de legado y
fija nuestra bandera ya que desde muy pequeño nos
recorre por la venas amar querer y sentir nuestra patria
El tema voy a cambiar por una causa en reclamo
que no se olvide el folklore vida del venezolano me voy a
unir a la lista de copleros afamados y en mi inspiración
otorgó pa jamás olvidarlos al caral de palmarito por
coplero vergatario a Luis sola del cubiro de los llanos
veterano a Luis custodió Loyola viejo cantor afamado
y el grandioso florentino en que canto con el diablo al
chistoso simón Díaz por su famoso cabello me despido
por ahora para volver no se cuando y nombrar mas
cantadores que hasta vivirán luchando por defender
el folklore y costumbres de mi llano

"Rolling in the Deep" was a success for her
Adele Laurie Blue Adkins
She was born on May 5, 1988, in North London, England. She was the only child of Penny Adkins, an "arty mom" who was just 18 at the time of her birth, and a Welsh father, Mark Evans, who left the family when Adele was only 4 years old.
Evans remained in contact with his daughter up until her teen years, when his problems with alcohol and increasing estrangement from his daughter caused their relationship to deteriorate. By contrast, Adele grew close to her mom, who encouraged her young daughter "to explore, and not to stick with one thing."
Early on, Adele developed a passion for music. She gravitated toward the songs of Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige and Destiny's Child. But her true, eye-opening moment came when she was 15 and she happened upon a collection of Etta James and Ella Fitzgerald records at a local shop. "There was no musical heritage in our family," Adele told The Telegraph in a 2008 interview. "Chart music was all I ever knew. So when I listened to the Ettas and the Ellas, it sounds so cheesy, but it was like an awakening. I was like, oh, right, some people have proper longevity and are legends. I was so inspired that as a 15-year-old I was listening to music that had been made in the '40s."

Científicos desaprueban escuchar Reggaetón
Escuchar música puede tener efectos positivos como también dañinos.Uno de los beneficios más referidos es el llamado “Efecto Mozart”, que afirma que los fetos y bebés que escuchan música clásica tienden a estar más tranquilos, concentrados y abiertos a los estímulos. Además se descubrió que ese tipo de música fomenta el hábito de aprendizaje y es capaz de hacer más inteligentes y razonables a las personas, de acuerdo con una serie de estudios realizados en Miami, Florida, que determinaron los efectos que produce cada género musical en el cerebro y la respuesta del ser humano a estos estímulos. No obstante, cuando los participantes de la investigación fueron sometidos a escuchar reggaetón, los expertos observaron que el efecto es totalmente contrario al de la música clásica. Se descubrió que este tipo de música daña el hipotálamo, disminuye la capacidad cerebral, así como la memoria a corto plazo y en consecuencia, el aprendizaje cuesta más. Ya a fines del año pasado la otorrinolaringóloga chilena Catalina Matalón explicó el riesgo que implica para el oído humano este estilo musical, no sólo por el volumen al que son escuchados, sino por la estructura sonora de las canciones, por su composición de frecuencias.
