RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (AP) -- It was the summer of 1962 when a tall, tan, young and lovely girl went walking on Ipanema beach, swaying like a samba past two awestruck composers and into music history.
As "The Girl From Ipanema" turns 40, Brazilians are celebrating the song that became a symbol of Rio and its laid-back, beach-loving lifestyle. A TV special about the song has run several times and a new book about bossa nova is planned to commemorate its first performance four decades ago.
The story goes that composer Antonio Carlos Jobim and his longtime collaborator, vinicius de Moraes, were sitting at a bar on Ipanema Beach when young Helo Pinheiro walked by and inspiration struck. The result was "The Girl From Ipanema," and the song, with its blend of jazz, samba, and subtle, haunting harmonies, became an instant hit. "This is a date which Brazilian musicians consider fundamental to the spread of the Brazilian sound worldwide," said Carlos Alberto Afonso, owner of the cafe and music store where the concert took place.
In 1964, an English version by singer Astrud Gilberto and saxophonist Stan Getz was released and quickly climbed to No. 5 on Billboard magazine's hit parade. It was nominated for seven Grammy awards and won four, including best single, beating out the Beatles' "I Want to Hold Your Hand." Nearly 200 artists have since performed renditions of the song, including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Nat "King" Cole, Mel Torme, Al Jarreau and Kenny G.
"The Girl From Ipanema" also was the high-water mark of bossa nova's popularity. It soon was supplanted by other musical styles in Brazil, but it retains a core of devoted fans.
Veteran composer Billy Blanco hopes the anniversary is a new beginning. "[This] feels like a wedding to me," Blanco said. "A wedding of the past with the present, a wedding of bossa nova with the Brazilian people once again."
Now enjoy the wedding of the music with Bruna Brazil!
Katie Harman, Miss America 2002
Named Miss America 2002 just days after tragedy rocked the nation on September 11, 2001, Harman encountered both a heart-wrenching and heart-warming firsthand look at the nation in its rise from the ashes. She chose to serve as an ambassador of hope—aiming the Miss America spotlight at those touched by breast cancer, in addition to those serving the nation in the wake of terrorism. Together with her 2001 Miss America Competition sisters, Harman also co-authored, Under the Crown: 51 Stories of Courage, Determination and the American Spirit, the first book of its kind, expressing the thoughts and experiences of each young woman during her year of service as touched by the tragic events of September 11th.
Today, Katie Harman's spirit, enthusiam, and superb vocal talent come to light in her highly anicipated, debut, semi-classical album, SOUL OF LOVE. This album effortlessly marries the worlds of classicla and pop music to reveal melodies of timeless appeal. Produced by Mah Records, Katie partnered with renowned concert pianist and composer Michael Allen Harrison to creat original arrangements from 18th and 19th century Italian poetry, as well as personal messages of love in English. The original arrangements are combined with two well-loved operatic pieces to create an enduring collection of II songs. This beautiful album serves as the artistic rendering of a soul that has truly experienced the joyful magic of having given and received love.
Her personal conviction about life and how to live it says it best: “serve greatly, love deeply, live passionately.” And throughout her journey, with every new challenge, and with every success, Katie Harman has adhered to her deep-seeded faith. It earned her the nickname “Ambassador of Hope” among her fans. It fuels the passion that flows from her classically trained voice, and it gave her the strength as Miss America 2002 to work to heal a nation as it grieved after the tragedy of September 11th.
As the reigning Miss America, Katie traveled the nation from September 2001 to September 2002 at an astounding pace of 20,000 miles each month. With every stop, in every city, and with every handshake, she delivered a message of comfort and hope to Americans such as the rescue workers at Ground Zero and the Pentagon, family members of those lost in the attacks, military officials, breast cancer patients, medical professionals, legislators, businesses, students, media entities, and more.
After her remarkable performance during the Miss America Pageant, Katie was sought after to sing with the famed Boston Pops Orchestra under the direction of Keith Lockhart, the Shreveport Symphony, the Oregon Symphony, the US Army Band, the USO, and other concert events across the nation. In 2003, she made her professional operatic debut with the Gold Coast Opera, and has since appeared in both full-scale productions and concerts with Obsidian Opera, Eugene Opera, Portland Summer Fest, Portland Musical Theater Company, and the Vancouver Symphony.
And somehow in those four quick years of performing across the country, Katie Harman married her true love, graduated Magna Cum Laude from Portland State University with a degree in Communications, gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, and bought a farm in the scenic countryside of Oregon.
Now her spirit, enthusiasm and vocal talent come together on her debut, semi-classical album, SOUL OF LOVE, which effortlessly marries the worlds of classical and pop music to reveal melodies of timeless appeal. Produced by MAH Records, Katie partnered with renowned concert pianist and composer Michael Allen Harrison to create original arrangements from 18th and 19th century Italian poetry, as well as personal messages of love in English. The original arrangements are combined with two popular operatic pieces to create an enduring collection of 11 songs. This beautiful album celebrates the joy of the soul when it has truly experienced the giving and receiving of love. Today, Katie can be found touring nationally as a performer, television personality, and speaker. She is the national spokesperson for the Touched by Cancer Foundation, offering support for cancer patients and their families. She is also a celebrity ambassador for Providence Cancer Center and the face of Portland Rescue Mission’s annual Drive Away Hunger campaigns. She also serves on several boards, including the Y-Me National Breast Cancer Organization and the Honorary Board of Directors of Volunteers in Medicine. Her work as an advocate and philanthropist has been featured by numerous media outlets, including The Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN with Paula Zahn, Late Night with David Letterman, People Magazine and The Washington Post. Her work has been honored by Fox Chase Cancer Center, University of Pennsylvania Cancer Center, Metcalf Institute of Radiation Oncology, Walter Reed Army Medical Center, and the Cancer Research Foundation of America, among many others

Gabby Yorath - Blackburn Rovers
Birth Name(s) : Gabby Yorath
Date of Birth: April 24, 1973
Partner: Kenny Logan
Profession: Athlete/Public Figure
It's a small claim to fame that Gabby Yorath has two Blue Peter badges. Both were for her gymnastics, but one should have been for guts. Who else, at fifteen, would ask a producer for a job? He advised her to go away, get some qualifications and try again when she was older. So, that was a 'no' then? Well, actually, it was a resounding yes. Gabby trotted off to Durham University to study law, landed an invite to Steve Cram's New Year Eve party and met a programme controller of Newcastle's Metro FM. Never backward in coming forward, Gabby said 'Gizza job' and before she could to a triple back flip she landed a three year deal - and the first-ever interview with Ryan Giggs for the university newspaper. How's that for starters? But Gabby Yorath had more than Giggsy on her mind. she wanted to make it big time - without having to live in the shadow of her famous dad, Terry.

Since the birth of her twins and the return of Steve Rider to ITV, she had been given a co-host role. This included ITV's coverage of the 2006 World Cup, on which she later commented: "I interviewed David Beckham but I didn't see a single game. It dented my confidence and made me question my abilities. If you've got ambition and you want to do well, it's obviously disappointing."
In August 2006 when Champions League returned to ITV, Logan was not present and it was announced that Rider would front with Jim Rosenthal as deputy. Under the ITV team section of the ITV football website, it announced that Logan would front ITV's UEFA cup coverage.
In September 2006, it was announced that ITV had banned Logan from competing in the fourth series of the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing, which began on 7 October 2006 (though she did appear in the studio audience at least once).

Birth Name(s) : Lisa Olivia Munn
Date of Birth: N/A
Status: Single Partner:
Lisa Olivia Munn was born in Oklahoma on July 2, 1982 to mother Kim Munn and father Sam Munn; she is of Chinese descent on her mother's side and of Caucasian descent on her father's. At the age of two, Munn's mother re-married to a man in the Air Force, and shortly after, they relocated. Although the family had relocated many times, Munn was predominantly raised in the Shinjuku district of Tokyo, Japan, where the military assigned her stepfather. During this time, she had appeared in a number of local theater productions, and later became a model within the Japanese fashion industry.
Munn moved back to the United States, settling in Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. In 2004, she interned at Fox Sports Net and worked as a sideline reporter for college football and womens’ basketball. She has gone onto say that she disliked the experience, explaining "I was trying to be something I wasn’t, and that made me really uncomfortable on live TV." Munn had also gained a small role in the straight to video horror film Scarecrow Gone Wild.
In the fall of 2005, Munn began her portrayal of Milly Acuna, a teen surfer, over two seasons of the TV drama Beyond the Break on The N network. She enjoys surfing and continues to practice the sport. She originally auditioned for the part of Kai, but the producers wanted a "local girl". She also appeared in the film The Road to Canyon Lake.

She was replacement for host Sarah Lane, who left the show along with Brendan Moran to get married. The network, devoted to the world of video games and the video game lifestyle, was at first hesitant to hire Munn because knowledge of the subject was her "weak point". However, she was eventually hired because she was more familiar with electronics. Alongside working on Attack of the Show, Munn hosts Formula D, a now defunct program about American drift racing. Munn also hosts a podcast on G4 called Around the Net; formerly known as The Daily Nut.

She played organ well enough as a teenager to serve as an organist at her church in Wareham. Enrolling at New England College, Davis eventually graduated with a bachelor's degree in drama from Boston University in 1979.
