Madonna is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She is known for reinventing both her music and image, and as a result, the "Queen of Pop" is an inspiration for many of today's contemporary artists.
Born in Bay City, Michigan, Madonna attended the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance before moving to New York City to pursue a career in modern dance. After singing with Sire Records in 1982, she began releasing albums, with many singles that reached #1 on the Billboard charts. Several, including "Into the Groove", "Papa Don't Preach", "Like a Prayer", "Vogue", "Frozen", "Music", "Hung Up", and "4 Minutes" were written and produced by her.
Outside of music, Madonna has acted in several motion pictures, including Dick Tracy, A League of Their Own, and the Next Best Thing. While most of her films have been panned by critics, she won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress for Evita in 1996, also contributing the hit song "Don't Cry for me Argentina" to the soundtrack.
