Madonna is a successful artist, whose songs are famous all over the world. It’s almost impossible to find a person, who hasn’t heard one of her huge hits, such as “Like a Virgin” or “Like a Prayer”.
The singer was born in a small town in Michigan on 16 August 1958. Her full name is Madonna Louise Ciccone. Madonna’s mother was born in Canada and devoted her life to raising her six children. The singer’s father had Italian heritage. He was a successful engineer. Madonna’s family was religious so parents sent her to a catholic school. In school, she became a big fan of dancing and started honing her natural skills.
When Madonna’s mother was pregnant with her sixth child, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. The religious ideology didn’t allow the woman to accept treatment while she was carrying a child. A few months after giving birth, Madonna’s mother died. She was just 30 years old.
Two years after her mother’s death, Madonna’s father married another woman. When she was a teenager, Madonna attended regular school, saying goodbye to her catholic studies. After the transfer, she started participating in school plays and musicals. The teenager also became a cheerleader.
