Janis Joplin

Janis Joplin

Born in Port Arthur, TX, in 1943, Janis Joplin began expressing her musical talents by singing in the local choir. She broke onto the national music scene with an explosive performance at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 and recorded three hit albums before her death at the age of 27.

The album she was recording at the time of her death, Pearl, went on to cement her reputation as one of the greatest rock singers of all time. “Me and Bobby McGee,” written by Kris Kristofferson, became a number one hit.
