Getting StartedGwen Renee Stefani was born October 3, 1969. As a child, she greatly enjoyed folk music and The Sound of Music. When they were young, she and her brother Eric would write songs, their first one entitled stick it in the hole, about a pencil going into a pencil sharpener. When Eric asked her to sing in his ska band, no doubt, she undoubtedly said yes.

Why I Chose Gwen StefaniGwen Stefani is a great role model. Shes not like the other celebrities you keep hearing about, who are arrested for DUI, who only weigh 80 pounds, or who are put in rehab. Gwen prefers family to fame and has a style completely her own. She doesnt care what anyone thinks, and she is overall a great person.
