Pink Biography, She was primarily seen as another face in the late-’90s crowd of teen pop acts, Pink quick drawing for one of the rare artists to transcend and outgrow the label. Born Alecia Moore on September 8, 1979, in Doylestown, PA (near Philadelphia), and Pink received her nickname as a child (it had nothing to do with her later shade of hair dye). She grew up in a musical family and by age 13 was a regular on the Philadelphia club scene, first as a dancer, then as a backing vocalist for the local hip-hop group Schools of Thought. At 14, she began writing her own songs, in the same year, a local DJ at Club Fever began that going on stage to sing a song every Friday.
Pink was spotted one night by an executive for MCA, who asked her to audition for an RB group called Basic Instinct, although they got the actions of the group imploded not long after. She was quickly recruited for a female RB trio Choice, which signed to LA Reid and Babyface’s LaFace label on the strength of their demo, but they too disbanded due to differences over musical direction. During short recording time Choice, producer Daryl Simmons asked Pink a bridge section to write the song “Just Be Loving You,” impressed by the results, Pink rediscovered her songwriting muse and an equally impressed with LA Reid soon gave her a solo deal with LaFace.
Pink recorded her solo debut, I do not home, take a variety of songwriting partners and dance-pop and RB producers. Released in 2000, the album was a double platinum hit, the spin-off of three top ten singles in “There U Go”, “most girls” and “You Make Me Sick”. They toured the summer as the opening act for N Sync, but soon found her tired of the box as strictly a teen act despite her sassy, outspoken personality. If they set about working on its follow-up album, Pink took part in the remake of Patti LaBelle’s “Lady Marmalade” featured on the soundtrack of Moulin Rouge, which includes powerhouse divas Christina Aguilera, Mya and Lil ‘Kim. The song became a massive hit, topping the charts in both the U.S. and UK
By the end of the year, Pink released her next single, “the party gets started, and it became her biggest, most inescapable hit to date, climbing into the top five. Her accompanying sophomore album, M! ssundaztood, quickly went double platinum, it boasted a more personal voice and a more eclectic sound, plus heavy contributions from ex-4 Non Blondes singer Linda Perry, who helped bring some more rock muscle to sounds of Pink (as guest appearances by Steven Tyler and Richie Sambora). M! Ssundaztood attracted positive critical notices as well, and her second single, “Do not Let Me Get Me,” became another fast rising Top Ten hit.
Pink next issued Try This in November 2003. The album was a bit more rock-oriented, partly due to the songwriting collaboration of rancid frontman Tim Armstrong on eight of the tracks on the album. Try This’ lead single, “Trouble,” cracked the upper echelons of Billboard’s Top 40 and earned Pink a Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance. On the home front, Pink wed motocross racer Carey Hart – whom she had initially met at 2001 X-Games – on January 7, 2006 in Costa Rica. Her next album, I’m Not Dead, appeared that April, her first single, “Stupid Girls” quickly became a hit, and the album reached the Top Ten. Steve Huey,
