Were you born between March 21 and April 19? You may want to know about some famous Aries singers who might even share your birthday.
Aries is the first sign in the zodiac, and it signifies the beginning of spring. Fortunately, you can find singers from various decades and genres born during this time. That means you should be able to find a singer whose style resonates with you so that you can listen to all of their songs.
Here are 11 of the greatest and most famous Aries singers of all time worth knowing about.
1. Mariah Carey
One of the most famous singers in this group overall is Mariah Carey, who was born on March 27, 1969. Her mother was an opera singer, under which she started vocal training at a young age. Because of her five-octave vocal range, she has a low register and high whistle tones. This talented Aries is also able to sing in a variety of styles, from pop to R&B.
After singing “America the Beautiful” at the 1990 NBA Finals, Carey shot to fame. The following year, her self-titled debut album became the best-selling album in the US.
Since then, she has released chart-topping songs and albums for fans to enjoy. To date, she has won five Grammy Awards and several music awards.
2. Lady Gaga
Our next Aries is Lady Gaga, born March 28, 1986, who quickly became one of the world’s most famous entertainers. While she started as a singer, she has also appeared as an actress in several movies. However, she is still better known for her vocals and her bizarre fashion choices, like wearing a dress made of meat.
Her debut album, The Fame, was #1 in the UK and Canada, with her song “Poker Face” becoming the world’s best-selling single in 2009. Since her big break, she has continued to have a ton of success in music.
Gaga has won three Grammy Awards as well as three Kids Choice Awards. She started the Born This Way Foundation, named after one of her hits, to help young people.

His first single, “I Heard It Through the Grapevine,” became Billboard Hot 100’s #1 in 1968. In 1972, he received two Grammy nominations for his album What’s Going On, which also became Rolling Stone‘s Album of the Year.
In 1994, tragedy hit the music world when Gaye was murdered by his own father. Despite such a short career, his passionate works are still enjoyed by many to this day.

Ross has earned honors such as the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Also, she is one of a few people to have not one, but two stars on the Walk of Fame. Her success influenced many other famous singers, from Beyoncé to Michael Jackson and Madonna.
7 . Steven Tyler
If you are a fan of rock music, you probably know about Steven Tyler. This Aries who was born March 26, 1948, helped start Aerosmith in 1970, and he has gained notoriety for his vocal range. So much so that some people call him the “Demon of Screamin’.” He can play the piano, harmonica, and various percussion instruments.
Tyler had experienced immense success with Aerosmith, with the group becoming the best-selling American hard rock band of all time, selling over 150 million records worldwide, but his drug addiction took hold of much of his life.
Fortunately, he has since made a successful comeback as a solo artist and has also served as a judge on the popular TV series American Idol.
8. Chaka Khan
Sometimes called the “Queen of Funk” is Chaka Khan, born March 23, 1953. After learning about jazz music, she fell in love with singing. Khan performed with multiple bands early in her career, including Rufus, where she gained popularity, before becoming a solo artist.
Her song “I Feel for You” topped R&B and dance charts in the USA and UK in 1985. Since then, she has gone on to win ten Grammy Awards. As a singer, she has collaborated with artists like Ariana Grande, which has helped increase her fame with younger generations.
9. Celine Dion
Canadian singer Celine Dion, born March 30, 1968, is one of the highest-earning singers in the world. Despite growing up in a poor family, she was able to work with a music manager from early on. Her manager took out another mortgage on his house to help launch her career.
With 200 million copies sold, she is one of the best-selling artists in the world. After gaining initial success in Canada, her popularity spread worldwide. A big part of this was her single “My Heart Will Go On,” which featured on the soundtrack of the movie Titanic and landed Dion the coveted Grammy Record of the Year (1999).
If you enjoy listening to Latin music, you have probably heard of Selena. She was one of the most popular Mexican-American singers, dubbed the “Queen of Tejano.” Selena received that name after bringing Tejano music to the mainstream in the 1990s.
Before becoming a soloist, she performed in a family band. One of her songs managed to stay at the top of the Regional Mexican Albums chart for 32 weeks.
Sadly, she died far too soon, after one of her former boutique employees, who was also the president of her fan club, killed her. She probably would have continued to be influential for many decades, and her music remains influential despite her passing.
