Apollo joins his older brothers, Kingston James McGregor and Zuma Nesta Rock, in the distinctive celebrity baby name club. Rossdale offered a little background information on the new baby's name when he tweeted a birth announcement on Saturday. "Bowie and Flynn =  [our] mothers' maiden names," he wrote.

The No Doubt singer first met the Bush frontman when they shared bill at a KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas show in 1995, and they tied the knot in 2002. The couple welcomed their first child, Kingston, four years later. Stefani announced over Instagram that the new baby was a boy in January, writing "I was ready to hand over the crown. But I guess I am still queen of the house. #itsaboy #surroundedbyboys."

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
