Born in Florida in 1945, Debbie Harry met guitarist Chris Stein in the 1970s, and the two started a band that would later become the world-famous Blondie. Categorized as new wave (a genre of music shaped by styles that include punk, electronica, reggae and funk), Blondie eventually met commercial and critical success. The band's third album, Parallel Lines, catapulted Harry to stardom and the song "Heart of Glass" reached No. 1, later followed by other chart-toppers like "Call Me," "The Tide Is High" and "Rapture." With her musical know-how and mesmerizing aesthetics, Harry became a pop icon, influencing many female singers to come.
