Ann Wilson [Rock Artist Birthdays][VIDEO]

By: Andrew H. Walker/Getty Images Entertainment

Born on June 19, 1950 in San Diego, California, Ann turns 62 today.

Songwriter, flute player, occasional guitarist, but best known as the lead singer of Heart, Ann’s piercing vocals are so awe-inspiring, she’s been called “the female Robert Plant”.

Of course, she and her sister Nancy were influenced by Led Zeppelin, and have covered several of their songs.

Their new box set, Strange Euphoria, released this month, contains a bonus disc called “Heart Zeppish” with five Zeppelin covers that all good fans know are part of Heart’s live shows.

Strange Euphoria is a career retrospective, which Ann says she’s always wanted to do, and features previously unreleased out-takes and live tracks, along with the big hits.

Back in 2007, Ann released her first solo album, Hope & Glory, with guest appearances by Elton John, k.d. Lang, and others.

Whether singing with Heart, with Nancy in the Lovemongers, or solo, Ann continues to command respect and awe from fellow musicians and fans alike.

Happy birthday to a true rock Goddess!
