Pink is an American music artist, actress, model, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. She was born Alecia Beth Moore on September 8, 1979 in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, USA. After attending elementary school during which time she also trained as a gymnast between the ages of 4 - 12, Pink took her high school education at Central Bucks High School West in Doylestown, PA.
Her interest and pursuance of carrier as music artist is said to had began while still at high school when she joined a rather short-lived band called Middleground. With the demise of the band, Pink continued to pursue a career in music through, among others, performing in clubs in Philadelphia before joining an all-girl music group called Basic Instinct in 1993 at the age of 14. But again, like Middleground, Basic Instinct was short-lived.
Basic Instinct was dissolved a short while later, but that did not, however, deter her search for a breakthrough into the music industry. In 1995 she and two other teenage girls established R&B group called Choice. The group had very little success, releasing only one single called Key To My Heart. It was eventually dissolved in 1998.
Notwithstanding, nevertheless, after almost seven years of unsuccessful persistent attempts to penetrate the mainstream of the global music industry, Pink finally made a breakthrough in 2000. That happened after she went solo and signed a recording contract with LaFace Records, and released her first studio album Can’t Take Me the same year. The album featured her debut singles There You Go and Most Girls, both of which peaked on Billboard Hot 100. The album earned her Female New Artist of the Year Award at the 2000 Billboard Music Awards.
Her second studio album Missundaztood was released just a year later in 2001. The album was a great success worldwide, reaching No.1 in charts in several countries including Ireland, Spain, Australia, and New Zealand. It earned her two awards at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards, as well as a World Music Award. Singles in the album include her masterpieces Just Like A Pill, Get The Party Started, Family Portrait, and Don’t Let Me Get Me. Because of the huge success of the album, Pink was named the 2002 Top Female Billboard 200 Artist of the Year.
Missundaztood is said to have redefined Pink as a music artist, portraying her total musical revolution by which she took fully control of her artistic creativity in terms of, among others, lyric writing and dancing style, hence Pink we know today.
Pink released her third studio album Try This in 2003 that was followed by a fourth studio album I’m Not Dead about three years later in 2006. The fourth album that featured one of her iconic masterpiece singles Stupid Girls, was quite a success reaching the top ten in USA and No.1 in Germany and Australia.
In 2008 Pink released her fifth studio album Funhouse. The album featured some of greatest hit singles including So What, Bad Influence, Please Don’t Leave Me, and Funhouse.
After a period about four years that entailed: a world tour for promoting Funhouse album, several collaboration ventures with other big-time artists, and delivery of a compilation album called Greatest Hits…So Far!!!, Pink in 2012 released her sixth studio album The Truth About Love.
The Truth About Love became extremely popular from the very beginning, topping Billboard 200 and becoming Pink’s first No.1 album in her homeland USA. It also became No.1 album in several other countries including Canada, Germany, Australia, and Sweden. Singles in the album include Blow Me, Try, and Just Give A Reason.
A world tour for buttressing the album, namely The Truth About Love Tour of 2013 is said to have generated $147.9 million in ticket sales making it the 3rd best selling tour that year. Same year, Pink signed a recording contract with RCA Records.
