Celebrity Monday - Martina McBride

Some other day my husband was talking about a celebrity and I didn't know who was the person, I can see faces and faces at TV shows, magazines, movies, but I don't know actors, singers or whoever name is, unless of course is a very know person, but other than that...
So, I don't need to say that I didn't know who Martina McBride was, right?

OK, let's see...

Martina McBride (born July 29, 1966) is an American country music singer and songwriter. McBride has been called the "Céline Dion of Country Music" for her big-voiced ballads and soprano range.

Wow! She must be good!!! I just want to say that I'm not a big fan of country music, but I actually enjoyed watch and hear her on YouTube.

I had to put this video as October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Nice video!

For some reason she reminds me of Reba McEntare, who I only know because i used to watch her show and thought she was very funny till one day my husband mentioned she was also a singer, i was surprised, how can someone can be such great actor and singer at the same time? Well, she's famous for her talent, duh!

According to Wikipedia,

Country music artist Martina McBride has received over 15 major music awards including matching Reba McEntire's record for the most wins for the Country Music Association's Female Vocalist of the Year with her fourth win in 2004.

There's a big list on Wikipedia of Awards and nominations.

The Barbie doll was released on 2005 and had a hair similar to the one in the picture above.

"Award-winning country music star Martina McBride is widely acknowledged as one of the premier female vocalist in country music today. This beautiful celebrity doll, carefully sculpted in the likeness of Martina, features a re-creation of the glamorous gown she wore to the 39th Academy of Country Music Awards, where she was named Female Vocalist of the Year for the third consecutive year! The talented artist is a real winner in white deserving of a standing ovation. Includes a collectible poster and keepsake bracelet! "  - from the manufacturer box

I liked this doll a lot. See, I don't mind when Mattel try to create a doll close as possible to the person look when they actually do a good job.

For this one, I think the actual Barbie's face fitted the doll very well and it's nothing but a very cute doll. Loved the short hair!

And, how about you, did you like this doll?

Hope you all have a great week!
