Pink

Biography

Pink (born Alecia Beth Moore, 8.9.1979) Pink is an American singer and songwriter who first rose to fame in 2000. She is possibly best known for her hit 'Get the Party Started' which was released in 2001 and later covered by Dame Shirley Bassey.

Childhood: Pink was born and raised in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Her parents are Judy and James Moore. Her mother is a nurse and her father is a Vietnam War veteran.

As a child, Pink attended Kutz Elementary School, Klinger Middle School and Central Bucks West High School. Whilst she was at high school, her father used to write songs for her to sing along to and she formed her first band, Middleground. The band had a rivalry with another local band, The Jetsists. Pink has claimed that Bette Midler and Janis Joplin are among her biggest musical influence.

At the age of 16, Pink joined another band, Choice. Choice signed to LaFace Records and their song 'Key To My Heart'. When the group disbanded, she continued to record for Laface under the stage name Pink. She also worked as a backing vocalist for Dian Ross and Tevin Campbell.

Musical Career: In 2000, Pink released her debut album, Can't Take Me Home. Produced by Babyface and Steve Rhythm, the album was awarded double platinum status. The singles 'There You Go', 'Most Girls' and 'You Make Me Sick' were all released from the album. That year, Pink worked performed as the opening act for 'N Sync's American tour.

In 2001, Pink recorded a single with Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Missy Elliott and Mya. Their cover of Labelle's 'Lady Marmalade' was featured on the soundtrack of Moulin Rouge!, the Baz Luhrmann film that starred Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman.

Pink's second studio album was entitled Missundaztood and was released in 2001. She enlisted the help of Linda Perry as songwriter for the album. Perry was formerly a member of the band 4 Non Blondes. The album was co-produced by Perry, Dallas Austin and Scott Storch. 'Get The Party Started' was the lead single for the album. Other singles to follow were 'Don't Let Me Get Me' and 'Just Like A Pill'. In 2002, Faith Hill used a song written by Pink and Perry for her album Cry. Later that year, Pink was chosen to support Lenny Kravitz on his tour.

In 2003, Pink's song 'Feel Good Time' was chosen for the soundtrack of Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. The film starred Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu. The song was co-written by Beck and was produced by William Orbit.

Pink's third album, Try This was less financially successful than her previous two full-length releases. Among the songwriters on this album was Tim Armstrong of Rancid. The album featured the singles 'Trouble' and 'God Is a DJ'. Pink won a Best Female Rock Vocal Performance Grammy Award for 'Trouble'.

In 2005, Pink appeared on Lisa Marie Presley's album Now What.

Pink chose a number of new producers to work on her fourth album, including Max Martin, Butch Walker and Christopher Rojas. Entitled I'm Not Dead, the album was released in 2006. 'Stupid Girls' was the lead single from the album and was her biggest hit since 2002. The song makes a mockery of female starlets such as Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson and Lindsay Lohan.

In 2006, Pink toured with Justin Timberlake on his FutureSex/LoveShow tour. She also collaborated with Indigo Girls on their Despite Our Differences album. She later recorded the track 'Sing' with Annie Lennox and 22 other female singers for Lennox's Songs of Mass Destruction.

2007 saw the release of Pink Box, a collection of albums two to four, as well as her Live in Europe DVD.

Pink's next studio album, Funhouse was released in 2008 and featured the singles 'So What', 'Sober' and 'Crystal Ball'.

Personal Life: In 2005, Pink proposed to her partner, the motocross racer Carey Hart. They married in January 2006, in Costa Rica. By February the following year, however, they had separated. In March 2009, it was reported that the pair had attended marriage counseling and were attempting a reconciliation.

Pink and Dallas Green Get Together For New Project, You+Me

Tags: You+Me - Pink - City and Colour

Fans of Pink and City and Colour will be pleased to know that the two will be releasing an album this fall …but not in the way they normally do. For the first time ever, City and Colour, real name Dallas Green, and Pink, real name Alecia Moore, are collaborating under the guise of You+Me.

You And Me ArtworkDallas Green and Pink formed their new project, You+Me

At first glance, the pairing seems a little odd for a number of reasons. You gotta wonder: what’s a big superstar like Pink doing with a fairly popular but not huge act like Dallas Green? And can Pink’s mainstream pop sound clash with Green’s indie charm? To answer these: Alecia Moore met Green through her husband, motorcycle racer Carey Hart, and they both felt a musical connection. He even opened a couple of dates on Pink’s The Truth About Love tour. According to a press release, the two got together in the studio and wrote more songs than expected - so they figured they might as well make a whole album. The result is a ten track full-length entitled rose ave., and the only problem we have is that the band name isn’t an awesome pun on “Pink” and “Green.”

Hi Pink - I just wanted to let you know that I love your music and it has helped me through some rough times in my life! If there is one piece of advice I can give you, is to enjoy your pregnancy and the baby!! They grow up so fast and the joys of being of mom are wonderful, fulfilling, stressful, and amazing. Take care and the best of luck to the months and years to come :) cassandra

How is it that a person so involved with PETA drowns her own dog? How does someone who cries about homeless do nothing about it, and Cheney's daughter is gay not Bush's. Wow if singers were smarter think of the influence it could have on America's youth. If lyrics were more complex and had deeper meaning than a reflection of the polls, we wouldn't have so many children left behind. While on the subject we have extremely capable teachers, but we don't have capable parents. Come on people let's start placing blame where it belongs.
