Bruce Springsteen, Freehold
Sarah Vaughan, Newark
Dionne Warwick, East Orange

Eddy Arnold, Henderson

I did not realize how musically gifted these two states are. It's probably better than Ernie Ford wasn't born, say, in Newark, because I don't know how far "New Jersey Ernie Ford" would make it, even in the proud state of New Jersey.
