Summary

Born into an average middle-class home near Detroit, Michigan, Madonna soon proved herself anything but typical. Her talent as a dancer earned her a scholarship to the University of Michigan. She soon left college, however, to seek stardom in New York City. After arriving in the city with just a few dollars in her pocket, Madonna became a singer in a rock band. When a DJ heard her demo tape, he sent it to a record company executive, who quickly signed her to a contract. Her first single, "Everybody," shot to the top of the dance charts. More than 25 years later, Madonna has sold more than 200 million albums, starred in a number of hit movies, and is one of the most recognizable faces on the planet. Read more about this entertainment icon's life, her successes, and setbacks in Madonna: Entertainer.
