Bjork (bee-york) is one of a few famous artists in Iceland. She has been known for being her-self and making creative music. She started her career early on, and studied piano through middle school. Later on, her school teacher submitted a recording of her signing to a radio station. Soon, she recieved a label from a local company at the age of 11. Today, you can but buy one of her records on ebay up tp $200. Bjork was not only successful as a child, but she still is today.
