Michael's solo album hit #5 on Billboard when he was just 14 years old, but the Beatles had already broken up, and Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison had all died by then.

Her second album was also recorded when she was 10, and also hit #2 on the Billboard 200, only slightly missing out on hitting #1 behind an Eminem album. She also hit #1 several times on the Billboard Classical albums chart.
