This file contains two pages that should give you a good idea of MLA format. The first page gives a sample of how an essay should be formatted, and the second is a sample of how the bibliography (aka "Works Cited") should be formatted. 

Note that these samples are for a music article (on the topic of jazz musician Duke Ellington). Some of the items in the bibliography include musical recordings. Pay attention to those when citing albums or songs for your biography. 

The samples are taken from: 

Gibaldi, Joseph. MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers. Sixth edition. New York: Modern Language Association of America, 2003. 319-20.
