Alecia Moore is known professionally as Pink (often stylized as P!nk), is an American singer-songwriter who gained prominence in 2000.
Pink released her first record, the R&B-based 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. 2003's Try This, her third album, failed to match the success of M!zzundaztood. After taking a break, Pink released her fourth studio album, I'm Not Dead (2006), which has been successful worldwide. Pink has so far sold over twenty-three million albums.
Alecia Beth Klara Moore was born in Doylestown, Pennsylvania to Vietnam veteran James Moore and nurse Klara Kugel. She is of Jewish ancestry on her mother's side, and is Irish, German and Lithuanian on her father's. Moore has identified herself as Jewish. She grew up in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, 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. When in high school, Moore joined her first band in high school called Middleground, which never gained popularity beyond local status. According to Moore, her biggest influences are Janis Joplin, Steven Tyler, Bad Religion, Mary J. Blige, Bob Marley, Billy Joel, Indigo Girls, Don McLean, 2Pac, and The Notorious B.I.G..
Moore developed her voice early in life. She began performing in Philadelphia clubs when she was fourteen years old. At age 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; Moore remained at LaFace as a solo act under the stage name Pink. Daryl Simmons took her to recordings where she sang backing vocals for artists such as Diana Ross, 98 Degrees, Kenny Lattimore and Tevin Campbell. Pink's debut single, the dance track "Gonna Make Ya Move (Don't Stop)", was released in the UK in 1998 by Activ Records and appeared on the UK top 200.
