Advertising Information for vagmusic

Mandy Moore, whose real name is Amanda Leigh Moore, was born on April 10, 1984 in Nashua, New Hampshire. She is an extremely good actress and singer that came to fame when she was only 16 years old.  She relies on a very peculiar family since her maternal grandfather was Jewish and her maternal grandmother was an English dancer.  In addition, her mother was a newspaper reporter and her father was a pilot.  She spent almost all her childhood in Florida.  It is believed that, when she saw the musical called Oklahoma!, she got really interested in singing.  Thus, when she was 15 years old, she recorded her first album called So Real under Epic Records.

With this album, she got to reach #31 in the 200 album Billboard chart.  Furthermore, her single titled “Candy”, which is included in this album, went gold, and in general, So Real sold 943,000 copies.  For this reason, the album was certified, in 2002 in the US, platinum.  After about six months, Mandy Moore released a different version of their prior album: I Wanna Be With You.  Despite it is not considered as a full follow-up album, it got to be certified gold and reached #21 on the Billboard 200.  The following year, the album titled Mandy Moore, which went gold despite it missed all charts, was released.

Three years ago, her 4th album, Coverage, was launched.  As it name implies, the album comprised only cover songs from the 70’s and 80’s and was ranked #14 on Billboard 200.  Nevertheless, this album was not really successful.  As the last Sony’s Epic Records, she recorded the album The Best of Mandy Moore.  However, it only reached #148 in the Billboard 200 due to the fact that it was not really promoted.  Through Warner’s Sire Records, Mandy Moore is planning to launch a studio album in this year.  It is believed that the title for it will be Slummin’ In Paradise, but it is not official yet.  Hence, Mandy Moore, although young, is a very talented and experienced singer and actress that is always able to provide her fans with great projects.
