A Listmania! list by John Fenech(Sydney, NSW Australia)
The list author says: "Alecia Beth Moore (born September 8, 1979), professionally known as P!nk (Pink), is a two-time Grammy-winning American singer-songwriter who gained prominence in 2000. P!nk released her first single 'There You Go' and first record, the R&B-oriented Can't Take Me Home, in 2000 via LaFace Records. Her pop rock-based second studio album, M!ssundaztood, was released in 2001 and is her biggest seller to date, featuring the chart-topping hits 'Get The Party Started' and 'Just Like a Pill'. P!nk then followed up her 2001 album with 'Try This', in 2003. After a bit of a break from music, she returned in 2006 with her fourth album 'I'm Not Dead' which spawned 7 hit singles. Her fifth album, 2008's Funhouse, was released in October 2008, and has been preceded by her first solo number one ever on the Billboard Hot 100, "So What". P!nk was born in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Judy, a nurse, and James Moore, Jr., a Vietnam veteran. Her father is Catholic and her mother Jewish, and her ancestors immigrated from Ireland, Germany and Lithuania. She grew up in Doylestown, where she attended Central Bucks West High School. Her father played guitar and sang songs for her, and from an early age she aspired to be a rock star. P!nk developed her voice early in life. Although a healthy baby at birth, she quickly developed asthma that plagued her through her early years. When she was a young teenager, P!nk wrote lyrics as an outlet for her feelings. She began performing in Philadelphia clubs when she was 14 years old. At sixteen, she joined the R&B Atlanta-based trio Choice, which included Chrissy Conway of the Christian girl group ZOEgirl. The group signed with LaFace Records and contributed "Key to My Heart" to the soundtrack of the 1996 film Kazaam. Choice eventually disbanded after recording an unreleased album; P!nk remained at LaFace as a solo act under the stage name P!nk."
