Twenty-six-year-old singer-songwriter Harry Edward Styles entered the music scene 10 years ago, and since then has been the person most moms, sisters, and maybe even ELA teachers keep gushing about. But, It’s not for no reason. Harry Styles is a good-natured person who makes stellar, enjoyable music.
Harry Styles was born February 1, 1994, in Redditch, England, to landlady Anne Twist and finance worker Desmond “Des” Styles. At only 16, Styles went on the TV show X-Factor UK and sang Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister.” Simon Cowell, one of the judges, wasn’t too impressed, but gave Styles a second chance and asked him to sing acapella. Styles made the quick decision to belt out Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely.” The audition went well, obviously, and he was paired with four other European teens (Nial Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, and Zayn Malik) to form one of the best-selling boy bands, One Direction. Sadly, One Direction went on an indefinite hiatus in January 2016, but Harry Styles still continued down the yellow brick road of fame.
Though he is most known for his compelling music, Styles is also known for his fearless experimentation with clothing and fashion. In December 2020, Styles was displayed on the front page of Vogue magazine rocking a black Gucci jacket and blue dress. This moment makes Harry the first ever solo man on Vogue cover in all of the magazine’s 127-year history.Read more
