Harry Edward Styles was born on February 1, 1994, in Worcestershire, England. As a child, Harry sang covers on a karaoke machine. The first song he recorded on the karaoke machine was Elvis Presley’s “The Girl of My Best Friend,” according to E! News.
From One Direction to a Wondrous Direction
Following a suggestion from his mother, Styles auditioned as a solo contestant for the British singing competition The X Factor in 2010. “People tell me I’m a good singer. It’s normally my mum,” the 16-year-old said at the time. “Singing is what I want to do, and if people who can make that happen for me think I shouldn’t be doing that, then it’s a major setback in my plans.” Singing a rendition of Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister” at first, Simon Cowell suggested that the track wasn’t right for him. He then performed an a cappella rendition of Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely” and advanced to boot camp but failed to progress further. Four others in his age group who were also eliminated were put together to form a band later that year to compete in the “Groups” category, mentored by Cowell. The group consisted of Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik. Styles suggested the name One Direction. “I thought it sounded good,” he recalled on CBS Sunday Morning in 2017. His suggestion “kind of stuck, and that was what it was.” The group finished in third place on The X Factor.
With their X Factor exposure, the boy band quickly became popular in the UK before becoming the platinum-selling, world-renowned boy band that they became. Since the band went on an indefinite hiatus in 2015, Styles has produced three chart-topping studio albums and launched his acting career. In 2017, Styles dropped his self-titled debut studio album with the track “Sign Of The Times.” His second album, Fine Line, was released two years later with the tracks “Lights Up” and “Watermelon Sugar.” In between making albums, Styles made his acting debut in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk. In 2021, he made an appearance in Marvel’s Eternals, followed by two starring roles in films in 2022: Don’t Worry Darling and My Policeman. His third studio album, Harry’s House, was released that same year with tracks like “As It Was” and “Music for a Sushi Restaurant.”
