Born: February 13, 1974
Robert Peter Williams was born in Stoke-on-Trent, on February 13th, 1974, to his mother, Jan, and father, Pete. Robbie attended Mill Hill Primary School, followed by St. Margaret Ward’s Roman Catholic School in Tunstall. At secondary school he became labeled as mischievous and a jester and subsequently left with no GCSEs. He participated in several school plays, and his biggest role was that of the Artful Dodger in a production of Oliver! He achieved fame when, at 16, he became the youngest member to join the all-male group “Take That” after responding to an advertisement. Now a true British superstar with over eighty million records sold worldwide, Robbie Williams has won more BRIT Awards than any other artist in history and is the best-selling British solo artist of all time. His twelve UK number-one albums, alongside a plethora of world records, including selling the most tickets (1.6 million) in one day, highlight his enormous success as both a live performer and recording artist. This year has been another huge one for Robbie: as well as writing the music to the acclaimed new musical “The Boy in the Dress” with Guy Chambers and Chris Heath, he also completed his first ever sold-out Las Vegas residency, played a triumphant sold-out show to 65,000 fans at Hyde Park in London, and will release his first Christmas album, “The Christmas Present,” on November 22nd. Robbie is a lifelong football fan and is the co-founder of the charity football event “Soccer Aid,” which has raised over £30 million for UNICEF, providing help for children in danger around the world.
