Biography

Alecia Beth Moore (born September 8, 1979), better known by her stage name Pink (stylized as P!nk), is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Originally a member of the girl group Choice, she rose to fame as a R&B artist with her debut album, Can't Take Me Home (2000). It was certified double platinum in the United States and spawned two Billboard Hot 100 top-ten singles, "There You Go" and "Most Girls". She gained further recognition upon collaborating with Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, and Mýa on a cover version of "Lady Marmalade" for the 2001 Moulin Rouge! soundtrack. The song gave Pink her first Grammy Award as well as her first number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100.

Although she originally faced opposition from her record label, Pink took more artistic control and pursued pop rock direction for her second album, Missundaztood (2001). It became her best-selling record with 13 million copies sold worldwide and produced three top-ten singles in the United States, "Get the Party Started", "Don't Let Me Get Me", and "Just Like a Pill". Her third studio album, Try This (2003), failed to repeat the success of her previous efforts, but earned her the Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance. Pink revived her popularity with her fourth studio album, I'm Not Dead (2006), which featured the top-ten hits "Stupid Girls", "Who Knew", and "U + Ur Hand".
