Janis Joplin was born in Port Arthur, Texas, on January 19, 1943. She had two younger siblings, Michael and Laura.
Primarily a painter while still in school, she first began singing blues and folk music with friends.
The campus newspaper The Daily Texan wrote:
"She goes barefooted when she feels like it, wears Levi's to class because they're more comfortable, and carries her Autoharp with her everywhere she goes so that in case she gets the urge to break into song it will be handy. Her name is Janis Joplin."
Janis was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on November 4, 2013.
