Every morning, the first thing I do when I get to work is look up celebrity birthdays on the Famous Birthdays website. Not only does it list each day's celebrity birthdays in order of popularity, you can also see other statistics like, if they're the most popular celebrity by that name or even by the state they were born in. I was surprised by our top five. Is there anyone else you would have thought would be in the top five?

Since going viral, he joined forces with several other young talents to form the Magcon team, which our very own Jay Whatley has traveled with for appearances across the country.
