During the last week of April 1992, following the acquittal of the Los Angeles police officers charged with excessive force in the beating of Rodney King, 53 people were killed and hundreds of buildings were destroyed in the rioting that ensued.
A week earlier, the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert was held at Wembley Stadium in London. The concert was televised live to over 1 billion people and raised millions of dollars for AIDS research.
It was also when Euro Disneyland opened in Paris.

#5 – Kenny Loggins – The Real Thing
#4 – Richard Marx – Hazard
#3 – Vanessa Williams – Save The Best For Last
#2 – Atlantic Starr – Masterpiece
