Short bio: 

Gwen Stefani was born in Anaheim, California, on October 3, 1969. Before she was famous, she scrubbed floors at a Dairy Queen to make extra cash. Her love of music was influenced by her older brother Eric who played a lot of recordings by such ska revival bands as Madness. With friend John Spence as the lead singer, Eric started the group No Doubt, and Gwen soon joined as their second vocalist.

After Spence's suicide in 1987, Stefani became No Doubt's lead singer. With "Tragic Kingdom" (1995), No Doubt emerged as a leading force in popular music. Stefani embarked on a solo pop career in 2004 by releasing her debut studio album Love. Angel. Music. Baby. Inspired by pop music from the 1980s, the album was met with both critical and commercial success. It spawned three commercially successful singles: "What You Waiting For?", "Rich Girl", and "Hollaback Girl", the latter reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 while also becoming the first US download to sell one million copies. In 2006 Stefani released her second studio album The Sweet Escape. The album produced two successful singles: "Wind It Up" and the album's title track "The Sweet Escape". Her third solo album This Is What the Truth Feels Like was released in March 2016 and became her first solo number-one album on the Billboard 200.

Stefani has won three Grammy Awards. As a solo artist she has received various accolades, including an American Music Award, Brit Award, World Music Award and two Billboard Music Awards. In 2003, she debuted her clothing line L.A.M.B. and expanded her collection with the 2005 Harajuku Lovers line, drawing inspiration from Japanese culture and fashion. Stefani performs and makes public appearances with four back-up dancers known as the Harajuku Girls. She was married to British musician Gavin Rossdle from 2002 to 2015 and they have three sons. Billboard magazine ranked Stefani the 54th most successful artist and 37th most successful Hot 100 artist of the 2000–09 decade. VH1 ranked her 13th on their "100 Greatest Women in Music" list in 2012. Including her work with No Doubt, Stefani has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide.

I am only and just a man , trying with the best of my ability to create a unique opportunity and a better way of life for my children. I have in all the years, for all the love I can muster;/been- broken and given up my dreams so that my children can never know the sorrow that I have,and that they can aspire to live a much-needed and thought better than my eyes, life to achieve greatness. Could you perhaps look and be inspired to tell a tale in song to inspire broken in life men to carry on .? My body is broken and I once had dreams to tell. I live in pain daily however this is good, as long as my children learn from it.
. You're compassion of song is a great influence,so mamm, thank you. And carry on.
With much admiration
Jason heimos
I know this will never be herd or read it's only a dream of mine
Thank you
