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

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.
