Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson

     Janet Damita Jo Jackson (born May 16, 1966) is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, dancer and actress. Born in Gary, Indiana and raised in Encino, California, she is the youngest member of the Jackson family of musicians. She initially performed on stage with her family beginning at the age of seven, and later started her career as an actress with the variety television series The Jacksons. She went on to star in other television shows including Good Times, A New Kind of Family, Diff’rent Strokes, and Fame.
     A member of the Jackson clan, Janet broke out with the highly successful “Control” and hasn’t looked back since. Jackson’s early career boasts two TV stints: “Good Times” (1977-79) and “Diff’rent Strokes” (1981-82). Jackson became the first artist in history to squeeze seven Billboard Top Five singles out of one album (”Rhythm Nation”). It was Janet Jackson who (inadvertently) put the term “wardrobe malfunction” into the American lexicon. In 2006, Janet Jackson released the album, “20 Y.O.” which celebrated the performer’s 20 years of hit making.
     Jackson faced initial difficulties after launching her recording career in 1982, often criticized for having a limited vocal range and being yet another child from the Jackson family to become a recording artist. However, with the collaboration of record producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Jackson found record-breaking success, producing five consecutive number one studio albums on the Billboard 200; these include Control (1986), Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814 (1989), janet. (1993), The Velvet Rope (1997), and All for You (2001). Although critics have compared her contemporary work less favorably to that of her initial breakthroughs, the critical and commercial success of her innovative multi-platinum albums, music videos and choreography have contributed to Jackson’s successful career as an entertainer.

Bon Jovi

     Bon Jovi is a hard rock band from Sayreville, New Jersey. Fronted by lead singer and namesake Jon Bon Jovi, the group originally achieved large-scale success in the 1980s. Over the past 25 years, Bon Jovi has sold over 120 million albums worldwide, including 34 million in the United States alone.
     With the possible exception of Def Leppard, no other band defined the Pop Metal era of the 1980s better than Bon Jovi. Everyone’s favorite furry-chested heartthrob Jon Bon Jovi has appeared as an actor in several feature films. Rocker Billy “Stroke Me” Squier produced the demo tape that got Bon Jovi signed in 1983. According to one bio, Jon Bon Jovi was offered the lead in the movie “Footloose”. Kevin Bacon stars in the movie. Jon Bon Jovi’s first recording was the song “R2-D2 We Wish You a Merry Christmas” for a “Star Wars” Christmas album.  
     Bon Jovi formed in 1983 with lead singer Jon Bon Jovi, guitarist Richie Sambora, keyboardist David Bryan, bassist Alec John Such, and drummer Tico Torres. Other than the departure of Alec John Such in 1994 (which pared the lineup down to a quartet), the lineup has remained the same for the past 25 years. After two moderately successful albums in 1984 and 1985, the band scored big with Slippery When Wet (1986) and New Jersey (1988), which sold a combined 19 million copies in the U.S. alone, charted eight Top Ten hits (including four number one hits), and launched the band into global super stardom. After non-stop touring, the band went on hiatus after the New Jersey Tour in 1990, during which time Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora both released successful solo albums. In 1992, the band returned with the double platinum Keep the Faith and has since created a string of platinum albums throughout the 1990s and 2000s.
