Paul Simon is one of the most amazing songwriters and singer of his time. He's been an influential figure for the American rock music scene. Some of his best work comes from pairing up with Simon & Garfunkel. Despite his age, Paul Simon has continued to see success for his long running career as a musician.

In The Beginning:

Paul Simon born on October 13, 1941 in New Jersey. His parents were Jewish American, and encouraged his talent for music from a young age. His father, Louis, worked as a bandleader and a teacher. His mother, Belle, worked as an English teacher too. Later on in life this helped Paul Simon quite a bit, since he's well known for his well written compositions. At a young age, Paul Simon moved to Queens, New York. He met Art Garfunkel and the two became fast friends. At the time, Garfunkel was known as “the most famous singer in the neighborhood.” During their time in Forest Hill High School, Garfunkel and Simon formed their own duo for a while they called “Tom and Jerry." They performed from time to time at school dances. The duo even pooled together $7 so they could perform the track “Hey Schoolgirl” in 1957.  It earned them enough success to have a chance to perform on American Bandstand, but they decided to separate instead when they attended college. They failed to produce a follow up to their previous success, but this hardly stopped Paul Simon from pressing forward with a successful music career.

Most Known For:

Paul Simon is unique in the fact his style tends to vary and change. Over the course of his career he and Garfunkel have come together to produce together. In the 1980s, he released Graceland, which is based off of Brazilian and African music. It was an unlikely hit for its time. In 1966, he and Garfunkel released an album called Sounds of Silence. The album was a hit, and later they even collaborated on the soundtrack for The Graduate in 1967.


Where Are They Now:

Paul Simon has been involved with philanthropic work in recent years. He's the co-founder for The Children's Health Fund alongside Dr. Irwin Redlener. Better known as the CHF, the fund donates and staff medical vans in order to bring heath care to the poor children in rural and urban locations within the United States. Ever since 1986, CHF has been able to make over three million patient and doctor visits. When Hurricane Katrina and Andrew struck down, CHF became the primary health care provider for the communities that were severely damaged by the hurricanes. Simon has also been able to raise a couple million dollars for causes such as The Joe Torre Safe At Home Foundations, AMFAR, Autism Speaks, The Nature Conservancy, and The Fund for Imprisoned Children in South Africa. 

Career Accomplishments:

Paul Simon has won quite a few awards over the course of his musical career. He has won 13 Grammy Awards so far. He has also won the Life Achievement Award. Time magazine even named Paul Simon as one of the “100 People Who Shaped the World” in 2006.
