Ann Wilson Biography

Born on June 19, 1950, in San Diego, California USA, Ann Wilson is one of the best known voices in Rock, having fronted the legendary band Heart since the mid-'70s.
Ann and her younger sister, Nancy Wilson, first showed the world that women can Rock when their album-Rock band stormed the charts in the '70s with hits like "Crazy On You", "Magic Man", "Barracuda", "Straight On" and so many more. They continued topping the charts through the '80s and into the '90s with monster hits like "Never", "What About Love", "These Dreams", "Nothin' At All", "Alone", "There's The Girl" and "All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You"; along the way, Heart sold more than 30 million records, had 21 top 40 hits, sold out arenas worldwide and had a profound influence on Rock music.

In the mid-'80s Ann Wilson duetted with Loverboy frontman Mike Reno on "Almost Paradise", the love theme from the 1984 film "Footloose"; the single peaked at #7 on The Billboard Hot 100.
Two years later she contributed the Mainstream Rock top 5 hit "The Best Man In The World" to the "The Golden Child" movie soundtrack.
In 1988 Ann Wilson scored another smash hit, "Surrender To Me", with another duet single taken from another soundtrack, "Tequila Sunrise"; the song recorded with Cheap Trick's Robin Zander shot to #6 on The Billboard Hot 100.

Eight years after her sister, Nancy, released her own solo album, Ann Wilson takes a center-stage bow with "Hope & Glory", a collection of social-commentary, message and protest songs. The CD, released on September 11, 2007, includes her rendition of Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song".
