Harry Styles, born in 1994, is a British singer-songwriter and actor, who made his music debut in 2010 as a member of boy band One Direction, with which he has sold over 50 million copies globally.
Following the group's hiatus in 2016, he launched his solo career in 2017 with the self-titled album, preceded by the single Sign of the Times, which reached number one in the UK, number four in the US and the top ten of 30 other countries. In 2019 he released his second album Fine Line, promoted by the singles Lights Up, Adore You and Watermelon Sugar, the latter number one on the Billboard 100. 2022 is the year of the third album Harry's House, which reached the top of the charts in nearly 30 countries, including the UK and USA, driven by lead single As It Was, which was the year's best-selling single globally.
Supporter of the LGBT community, in 2014 he joined the #FirstSnog campaign launched to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the charity Stonewall Group, in support of LGBT rights in the United Kingdom, as well as having shown support for Michael Sam, the first active militant player in the NFL to have publicly declared coming out, wearing his shirt on stage during the One Direction concert in Saint Louis. From then on he is often seen waving the rainbow flag during his live performances, especially during the Love on Tour, conversing with the audience and sometimes helping his fans come out.
