MADONNA

Madonna, real name Madonna Louise Ciccone, was born in Bay City, Michigan on August 16, 1958, and is an American singer, songwriter, actress, dancer, icon and Queen of Pop. Madonna headed to New York City in 1978 to make a career in modern dance, but soon became a shape-shifting music legend, harnessing the power of video and able to work with some of the most ground-breaking designers, producers and musicians. Madonna holds the Official Chart record for the female with the most UK Number 1 hit songs -13, as well as the artist with the most UK Number 2 singles also - 12, plus a further 12 Number 1s on the Official Albums Chart. Her first ever Number 1 single, Into The Groove, also went on to become Madonna’s best-selling single in the UK, helped in part by featuring in hit movie Desperately Seeking Susan, in which Madonna starred – and the fact that it wasn’t available on any Madonna album, but it was added to a reissue of Like A Virgin that year.
