Famous people born on this day include Riley Voelkel and Jean-Eric Vergne. In that special week of April people in US were listening to Nothing Compares 2 U by Sinead O'Connor. In UK Vogue by Madonna was in the top 5 hits. Swarg, directed by David Dhawan, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1990 while Parting With Illusions by Vladimir Pozner was one of the best selling books.
