1948

The year 1948 was a good year with the births of Stevie Nicks, Olivia Newton John, Donna Summer and myself.

Stevie Nicks

She has a charity foundation titled “Stevie Nicks’ Band of Soldiers” which is used for the benefit of wounded military personnel.

In 2004, Nicks began visiting Army and Navy medical centers in Washington, DC. While visiting wounded service men and women, Nicks became determined to find an object she could leave with the soldiers that would raise their spirits, motivate, and give them something to look forward to each day. She eventually decided to purchase hundreds of iPod Nanos, load them with music, artists, and playlists which she would hand select, and autograph them.

Oliva Newton John

She has been a longtime activist for environmental and animal rights issues. Since surviving breast cancer in 1992, she has been an advocate for health awareness becoming involved with various charities, health products and fundraising efforts.

Donna Summer

Regrettably Donna died in early 2012 at the age of 63 of cancer.

She performed at countless LGBT pride events and would participate in several HIV/AIDS charities.

Good works

The ladies have greatly contributed to the world of music each with their own style and usually with songs of meaning and musical poetry. They also have contributed to humankind. Bless them all as we have been blessed by them.

1948 was a good year.
