Dido

Shockingly, a shared moniker with a historical Carthaginian queen isn't the most interesting thing about 34-year-old singer Dido. A classically trained musician, Dido has released two massively succesful pop albums as a singer, reportedly selling 22 million in the process, not to mention guesting on a post-humous 2Pac release.

Shockingly, a shared moniker with a historical Carthaginian queen isn't the most interesting thing about 34-year-old singer Dido. A classically trained musician, Dido has released two massively succesful pop albums as a singer, reportedly selling 22 million in the process, not to mention guesting on a post-humous 2Pac release.

Dido's 'No Angel,' released two years prior, found its audience in 2001 on the strength of rapper Eminem's era-defining single 'Stan,' which sampled the chorus of Dido's own 'Thank You.' Her soft, cherubic vocals struck a chord with adult and adolescent alike, as she found her market bridging the gap between mature singer-songwriter and dance/trip hop.

Following a successful collaboration with Carlos Santana on his 2002 album 'Shaman,' Dido released her second album, 'Life For Rent,' buoyed by sales of the singles 'Life For Rent' and 'White Flag..

Since then she's released a live DVD, 'Dido Live At Brixton Academy,' appeared the Band Aid 20 single 'Do They Known It's Christmas' and lent her vocals to the track 'Don't You Trust Me,' recorded by 2Pac before his murder in 1996 and released on December 2004 album 'Loyal To The Game.' Both song and album were produced by Eminem. « hide
