Adrienne Eliza Bailon was born on October 24, 1983 in the Lower Eastside of Manhattan, New York. Adrienne’s major breakthrough occurred on one fateful day in 1999. She was singing with her church at Madison Square Garden, when the one and only Ricky Martin walked through the doors. He asked that the four best singers from her choir be chosen to sing backup for him for his concert that night. Adrienne was one of those singers.
