With music today available on YouTube, online and satellite radio, MTV, through digital downloads, and on iPods and other handheld devices, we may think that we have heard all there is to hear about modern artists. The stories behind the songs that keep us humming are less often explored. Readers will learn how some of the most popular musicians today, entertainers such as Madonna, Adele, Kanye West, and Taylor Swift, rose to fame and made important musical breakthroughs, all while paying tribute to those who came before them.
