Alecia Beth Moore, Better known as Pink, was born on September 8, 1979 in Doylestown, Pennsylvania to James and Judy Moore. Her father aspired that she would become a rock star and played guitar and sang songs for her when she was young. When she was 13 she sang as a back-up vocalist on a friend’s rap group. By the time she was 14 Pink had already wrote a song. After a performance at Club Fever in Philadelphia, Pink was asked by an MCA representative to audition for a group called Basic Instinct. The group was not very successful and Pink eventually got in another band called Choice.

On April 4, 2000, Pink released her first album “Can’t Take Me Home” beginning her career as an R&B artist. Even though Pink was not happy because of the lack of creative control she had for the record, the album proved quite successful becoming double platinum. The singles "There You Go" and "Most Girls" entered the top 10 and the single “You Make Me Sick” featured in the movie Save The Last Dance. In 2001, Pink, along with singers Lil’ Kim, Mya and Christina Aguilera, participated in a remake of Labelle’s 1975 hit “Lady Marmalade”. The song was featured in Baz Luhrman’s Moulin Rouge! And was produced by hip-hop producers Rockwilder and Missy Elliott. The song became very popular, went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals.

Pink, looking to have more creative control, recruited Linda Perry and together they worked on Pink’s next album co-writing and co-producing most of its tracks. Missundaztood was then released on November 20, 2001. The album’s first single “Get The Party Started” went top five in the U.S. and topped charts in other countries. Following singles, "Don't Let Me Get Me", "Just Like a Pill" and "Family Portrait", were successful too. Missundaztood was the second best-selling album in the UK during 2002, and worldwide Pink was the best-selling female artist globally.

On November 11, 2003, Pink released her third album Try This. The record reached the Top 10 on album charts in the U.S., Canada, UK and Australia in 2003. Its single “Trouble” earned Pink her second Grammy award that same year. Following that album, Pink’s fourth record, I’m Not Dead was released in April, 2006. The CD had started causing controversy before it was even released. The song "Dear Mr. President" is an open letter to President George W. Bush.
