Today is Joyce DiDonato’s 50th birthday – and here are all the reasons why we’re head-over-heels in love with her.
She’s outspoken – and totally unapologetic about it
She uses her celebrity to do good in the world

Her voice is ridiculously agile
Can I just say how in awe I am of @JoyceDiDonato and her never ending ability to be so very agile, playful and graceful whenever she performs! 🎵🤩😍💗🎶#queen #singergoals #sopranoGold #LoveOfVoice pic.twitter.com/ETZCnH1dMv— Jazmine Johnson (@jzmn132) February 9, 2019
She dresses like a rockstar
Once, she slipped and broke her leg during a performance of The Barber of Seville in Covent Garden – and completed the remainder of the run in a wheelchair.
Proof that Joyce is, in fact, superhuman.

She gives super-inspiring speeches
