They were so famous that many of the people who did not appreciate opera music have been delighted into the craft, thanks to these three that amped classic singing into a whole new level. What began as a collaboration of the three in raising funds for José Carreras’ International Leukaemia Foundation, grew into a series of concerts that lasted from 1990 until 2003. Their famous hits include “Nessun Dorma” and “O Sole Mio”, which would make you appreciate their unique kind of music.

This famous trio became the talk of the town when the popular book Harry Potter by writer J. K. Rowling took the world by storm. The said published material was a staple to most kids in junior high, becoming interested in the world of wizardry, sorcery, and magic, as portrayed by Rowling in picturing Harry’s life in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry Potter was able to make friends with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger on his first few days at Hogwarts, making the trio inseparable no matter the kind of adventure and situation they could get themselves in.

You have heard these three chipmunks sing their songs in the airwaves, singing to the tunes of “All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth”, and other hits like “Christmas Don’t Be Late”, “Macarena”, and more. Alvin, Simon, and Theodore are three singing chipmunks that are being handled and taken care of by manager, Dave Seville. These guys have been created by Ross Bagdasarian Sr., where he sings all three voices in different pitches and then speeds them up to sound tiny and high-pitched. It was very surprising that the chipmunks, including Dave, and even the Chippettes have been successful, despite of the simple trick that can easily be done these days. From the music scene, to cartoons, and even in 3D movies, the singing trio made their way to success, even beyond imagination.

First known in the Silly Symphonies comic strip created by Disney being published in newspapers, Huey, Dewey, and Louie appeared as Donald Duck’s nephews even as early as October 17, 1937. It is also surprising to know that the names of these three ducklings came from three animators that worked at the Disney Studio, namely Huey Long, Thomas Dewey, and Louis Schmitt. The nephews also appeared at a time when Mickey Mouse’s nephews, Morty and Ferdie Fieldmouse have been introduced. They also became noted in the Disney TV animation series, Ducktales, where their association with Uncle Scrooge McDuck was apparent in most of its episodes. Even though they look alike, you could easily identify them with Huey wearing red, Dewey wearing blue, and Louie being green.

Even though the Three Stooges act was more famous back in the earlier years from 1925 until the 1980s , the acts of Moe, Larry, and Curly defined a different form of comedy, something that is more noisy, a bit nonsense, and a whole lot of funny. Back during the early days of the show, Ted Healy named the show “Ted Healy and His Southern Gentlemen”, “Ted Healy and His Stooges”, and “Ted Healy and His Three Lost Souls”, using the characters of Moe, Larry, and Shemp. However, everything changed when Shemp left to perform solo, and Curly came into the picture, which was also the time that the title “The Three Stooges” was created. Lots of movies and shorts have been created because of their funny antics, which made many generations laugh their hearts out. However, due to old age and disease-stricken characters, the Stooges ended their act sometime in the 80s.

5. Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith, and Kate Jackson

How does it feel to receive assignments and missions from a boss that you have never seen before? Or much worse, you could only hear him through a speakerphone or squawk box? Well, you just have to ask the Angels to figure that out for you. Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith, and Kate Jackson were known to be Charlie’s Angels, the original versions of Lucy Liu, Cameron Diaz, and Drew Barrymore, who have adapted the 1970s action series on TV into movies. It was a good thing that the title of the series is as it is today. Otherwise, viewers may not be interested watching the show seeing that Alley Cats are making their way into solving missions from someone who does not show his face. If it was not for Charles Townsend, these three girls who graduated from the Los Angeles Police Academy could have lived their lives as normal policewomen, not enjoying the life of being private investigators. At least, mission briefing would not be as mysterious as it is, thanks to Bosley who’s there to address different concerns.

4. Athos, Porthos, and Aramis

In fact, when d’Artagnan was about to enter the order of the musketeers, he had to duel each of them due to his planned heroic acts, which is actually the very role that was supposed to be played by the three. Nevertheless, he was able to gain their respect, which makes d’Artagnan included in the group of three. Famous for the lines “All for one, one for all” which was put up by d’Artagnan, the Three Musketeers have found their way into liking the fourth member. And together, they have fought to vanquish evil, as was written by the creator of the novel, Alexander Dumas.

Peter, James, and John were among the first few apostles that have been called right after Jesus Christ fasted for forty days in beginning his ministry, after overcoming the temptations of Satan and receiving instructions from angels sent by His Father. They met in Galilee while Peter and Andrew were catching fishes. Jesus invited the two to be fishers of men, and the two followed him, leaving their nets behind. James and John also received the same invitation and left everything, including their father. Peter, James, and John were not only considered to be prominent members of the apostleship for only being called the first. In fact, there are many important events in Christ’s life that involved the presence of these three including Jesus’ transfiguration and His atonement in the Mount of Olives in Gethsemane.

2. Melchior, Gaspar, and Balthazar

Three men that have been spoken in the bible as the Wise Men of the East, although there have never been accounts that the said number of these wise men were actually three. However, the reference to such number has been due to the gifts that were given to Jesus Christ after his birth in Bethlehem where gold, myrrh, and frankincense were presented. The names of Melchior, Gaspar, and Balthazar were also never found within the texts of the scripture, attributing everything to tradition from various countries near the place where “the East” is located, which could be attributed to locations such as Persia, Arabia, and India. Their roles were cut short when an angel appeared to them in a dream, warning them to never return to King Herod. Thus, they have gone their way and were never heard of again.

Often referred to as the Trinity on most denominations, God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost have different functions while remaining one in purpose. While some are claiming that these three divine beings are all substances of but one God, one particular passage in the Bible disproves such claim, seeing that they have appeared all at the same time in order to fulfill their purpose. During the baptism of Jesus Christ in the River Jordan by his cousin, John the Baptist, it has been written that after Jesus was baptized, being immersed in and out of the water, a voice from heaven was heard saying, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him”. After hearing the voice, the Holy Ghost appeared in the form of a dove, signifying the divinity of the said event. Though they have been seen but once, the existence of these three beings mark the foundation of faith of all Christendom, all over the world.
