The most recognizable and well-known name of Blues music, B.B. King was honored by a Google Doodle on his 94th birth anniversary. He was also known as “King of the Blues”
Google remembered B.B. King through a video and it shows the iconic singer holding a guitar. King was born in 1925 near a town called Itta Bena, Mississippi. He started his recording career in 1949 and gave his first hit ‘Three A Clock Blues’. His most popular cult classics were ‘The Thrill Is Gone’ and ‘Every Day I Have the Blues’.
Today’s Google Doodle has been illustrated by Little Rock-based guest artist Steve Spencer and animated by Brooklyn-based guest animator Nayeli Lavanderos.
The Google doodle dedicated to the ace singer-songwriter, guitarist, and record producer, features a vibrant animated video summarizing his entire life.
