Harry Styles got his start in the well-known boy band One Direction and has since become a a versatile singer-songwriter who has taken the world by storm with two solo albums and a charming composure. In honor of his 27th birthday today, we're taking a look back at some of his most iconic moments.
Styles' Start on One Direction
As many know, Styles began his singing career on The X Factor along with Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson, forming the boy group One Direction. Together, the group has won numerous Billboards and recognition until their break up in August 2015.
Since then, each of the group's members have gone on to do various solo projects with Styles making his acting debut and receiving Grammy nominations for his album Fine Line (2019), performance on "Watermelon Sugar" (2019), and music video for "Adore You" (2019).
In an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Styles discusses the film.
"It's kind of the opposite to a traditional kind of movie set around war. It's not us being the heroes and kind of going and saving the day. It's just about community heroism and how the small acts from civilians and the normal people who are at home coming to save us, kind of together, makes this massive thing and I think it's very much about the spirit of people and how when people come together, you can do incredible things."
