Brain Game: The Top-10 Queen

Today's Brain Game Free-for-All Friday entry is trivia, but this question should warrant enough thought to qualify as a mental challenge. A hint? Okay... it's not Dolly, or Olivia, or Cher. Good luck!

What female vocalist remains the only recording artist
to score Top-10 singles on Billboard's Pop, Country, Dance,
Adult Contemporary, and R&B Charts?

Here is the ANSWER.



The hits "Morning Train," "Sugar Walls" and "We've Got Tonight" qualify her for the above. She also reached the Top-10 on Billboard charts with several other songs, including "Strut" and "The Lover In Me."

Thanks for playing! Join us in three days for a new Monday Math Square.

Fans of Broadway hit Hamilton will soon be able to dine like the Founding Fathers: As Eater reports, a new Alexander Hamilton-inspired cookbook is slated for release in fall 2017.

Called The Hamilton Cookbook: Cooking, Eating, and Entertaining in Hamilton’s World, the recipe collection by author Laura Kumin “takes you into Hamilton’s home and to his table, with historical information, recipes, and tips on how you can prepare food and serve the food that our founding fathers enjoyed in their day,” according to the Amazon description. It also recounts Hamilton’s favorite dishes, how he enjoyed them, and which ingredients were used.

Recipes included are cauliflower florets two ways, fried sausages and apples, gingerbread cake, and apple pie. (Cue the "young, scrappy, and hungry" references.) The cookbook’s official release is on November 21—but until then, you can stave off your appetite for all things Hamilton-related by downloading the musical’s new app.
