March is Women's History Month, so across the world, people are celebrating awesome ladies! On our Facebook page, we recently asked people to share some of their favorite female singers. The answers varied, from P!nk to Amy Lee to Ann Wilson.
While it would be impossible to compile a list of the BEST female singers and then try to rank them, I am more than comfortable picking a few great female singers who deserve to be recognized for all they've done. Here are 5 powerhouses music owes a debt of gratitude!
Cher, who has earned the nickname Goddess of Pop, first emerged on the scene in 1965 when she and her husband, Sonny Bono, rose to fame. Through the years, she established herself as a singer in her own right, and even went on to have several Broadway and acting gigs. Cher has had incredibly successful hit singles, including early tunes like "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)" and "Dark Lady," and later songs like "If I Could Turn Back Time" and "Believe."
Yes, it's true, Queen is joining up with Adam Lambert for a North American tour. The three performers will hit the road beginning June 19 in Chicago, IL. The tour will wrap up on July 20 in Washington, D.C.
The trio has recently been increasing their amount of touring activity. In 2011 and 2012 they toured together in Europe, and last September they performed at the iHeartRadio Music Festival.
On a side note, I'm very happy to admit I was wrong about the likeliness of this happening. A few years ago, I wrote a post about bands that should get back together for a reunion tour. I regarding as this to be an unlikely thing for Queen due to not much happening in terms of getting Lambert on board. Well, now he is on board, and they are going on tour.
