Jan. 10: Pat Benatar, 70
After being eligible for more than two decades, Benatar and her musical partner and husband, Neil Giraldo, were finally inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame last year. The “Love Is a Battlefield” duo are getting into the jukebox musical game with their new show, Invincible, which uses their catalog as the soundtrack for a 21st-century retelling of Romeo & Juliet. The show premiered in November at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills, and Benatar has said she hopes it will transfer to Broadway.

Jan. 16: Ronnie Milsap, 80
A legendary country singer who has been almost completely blind from birth, Milsap has racked up an impressive 35 number 1 country hits during his decades-long career, placing him fourth behind only George Strait, Conway Twitty and Merle Haggard. The six-time Grammy winner is still going strong, having released a new album called A Better Word for Love in 2021, and last spring he debuted a new podcast called Music and Milsap, in which he shares hilarious road stories, chats with other musicians and answers questions from fans.
