Biography

Alecia Beth Moore Hart (born September 8, 1979), better known by her stage name Pink (stylized as P!nk), is an American singer-songwriter, actress and model. Originally a member of the girl group Choice, she began her solo career with the 2000 single "There You Go", which was also included on her debut album, Can't Take Me Home, released later that year. The R&B album went on to be certified double-platinum in the United States. She gained further recognition upon collaborating with Lil' Kim, Christina Aguilera and Mýa for a cover of "Lady Marmalade" for the 2001 Moulin Rouge! soundtrack. That cover earned Pink her first Grammy Award (for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals) as well as her first number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100.

Although she originally faced opposition from her record label, Pink aimed to make her second album more personal and more pop rock-oriented. The product, 2001's Missundaztood, proved to be her most successful album to date, with sales in excess of 12 million copies. The album's biggest singles, "Get the Party Started", "Don't Let Me Get Me", and "Just Like a Pill", all charted in the top ten in the US and the UK, with the latter becoming her first UK-number one. In November 2003, Pink released her third album, Try This, preceded by the single "Trouble". Although not her most successful album, Try This earned Pink her first solo Grammy Award, for best female rock vocal performance.
