Belinda Jo Carlisle Mason

Yep, Madonna and Babe born the same year, a day apart. Cosmic right??

Happy 53rd Birthday, Babe.

Belinda Carlisle, born Belinda Jo Carlisle (also known as Belinda Kurczeski); on August 17, 1958 in Hollywood, California, is the lead vocalist and a founding member of the Go-Go's as well as a successful solo artist.

Carlisle's first venture into music was a brief stint as drummer for the punk band The Germs under the name Dottie Danger, although illness prevented her from ever performing with them live. Soon after leaving this band she founded the Go-Go's (originally named The Misfits) with friend and fellow music novice Jane Wiedlin. With bassist-turned-guitarist Charlotte Caffey, guitarist-turned-bassist Kathy Valentine, and drummer Gina Schock.

In addition to the Go-Go's, Belinda also released several successful solo records. Her first solo album, Belinda, was released on I.R.S. Records in 1986. Her #3 summer hit "Mad About You" was followed by the Motown-influenced single "I Feel The Magic" and by a cover version of "Band of Gold", all three songs included on the album.

During this time, Carlisle also had songs featured on movie soundtracks, notably "In My Wildest Dreams," the opener in the movie Mannequin, as well as "Dancing in the City" from the Whoopi Goldberg movie Burglar.

Belinda released several more solo records including Heaven on Earth, Runaway Horses, Live Your Life Be Free, Real, A Woman and a Man, and most recently the 2007 all-French language release Voila.
