Jameel Sab, I got up from mid of my sleep to answer your this question...

I will not be able to state the names who converted.. but I will give the Logic behind their conversion to Islam..

There are mainly two characteristic in human nature.. one is individualist and second Communistic.. Individualist people do not like social binding and hence enjoy their freedom.. but people who are Community bound enjoys the sharing nature with people..they feel themselves one of the member of the community..

1. A. R. Rehman - He was going through some bad phase and someone said that converting to Islam may provide him some solace. So he did and got succes too.
2. Michael Jackson - Whatever people say, he basically turned Muslim as part of the deal to escape the payment to Sheikhs for multimillion dollars claims.
3. Mohammad Ali - He was annoyed with racist policy of those times in USA, where Christinity had divided people in Black Church and White Church. Despite being a Christian, he would not be allowed entry into Church of Whites. He felt outraged and converted to Islam.
