February 1 is Harry Styles’ Birthday!
Born on February 1, 1994, Harry Styles is the youngest member of the British-Irish boy band One Direction. Upon auditioning for The X Factor in 2010, Simon Cowell placed Styles with other solo acts Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, and Zayn Malik to create the pop group One Direction. Although they finished third in The X Factor competition, One Direction signed with Cowell’s label Syco Records and have gone on to be a great success.
Prior to The X Factor, Harry was in a band called White Eskimo with a few classmates. He credits the singing competition for providing him with a lot of confidence. One Direction has since become an international sensation, with their two albums (Up All Night and Take Me Home) selling well over 15 million records.
Happy Birthday Harry!
