Award winning artist and cool mom, P!nk, or Alicia Beth Moore, has gained great success from her many albums and killer vocals. Her unique voice and styles have allowed her to propel her career to great lengths. In 1995, she signed with LaFace Records and released her first album in 2000. This first album Can’t Take Me Home became very popular, featuring the two R&B hits “There You Go” and “Most Girls” launching her career and her life as a singer. When she collaborated on “Lady Marmalade”, P!nk became even more popular amongst the public. With Missundaztood in 2001, she created a pop rock album with an emotional twist. Three of the songs from this album, “Get the Party Started”, “Don’t Let Me Get Me”, and “Just Like a Pill” became so popular they were international number one songs. Her third album, Try This, wasn’t as popular, but did earn her her first Grammy. She then released the albums I’m Not Dead and Funhouse in 2006 and 2008, which included the top songs, “Who Knew” and “So What”. In 2012, P!nk released her 6th album The Truth About Love and the hit song “Just Give Me a Reason”. In 2014, she released a collaboration album with Dallas Green and You+Me. She also released Beautiful Trauma and Hurts2BHuman in 2017 and 2019 which debuted on the Billboard 200 charts.
Her amazing talent earned her many awards throughout the years, including three Grammy Awards, two Brit Awards, a Daytime Emmy Award and seven MTV Video Music Awards. She was named one of the best pop song artists of the decade by Billboard in 2009. VH1 ranked her at number ten on their list of the 100 Greatest Women in Music, while Billboard awarded her the Woman of the Year award in 2013. She also sold 90 million records worldwide as of 2020 which makes her one of the best selling artists of all time. As P!nk continues to write and record music, she is raising her two kids alongside her husband, Carey Hart. Her kids are Willow Sage Hart, 9, and Jameson Moon Hart, 4. She has also appeared in many movies including Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, Spongebob Squarepants, and Happy Feet Two. Alongside her music career, P!nk has also gone on tours to perform her album live in concert for her fans. These tours include Party Tour, Try This Tour, I’m Not Dead Tour, Funhouse Tour, the Funhouse Summer Carnival, The Truth About Love Tour, and Beautiful Trauma World Tour. She is also an animal rights activist, partnering with PETA to declare that she will never wear fur. She also publicly stands with the LGBTQ+ community and has even highlighted their struggles in her song “What About Us”. P!nk proves to be an amazing artist and person, with compelling music and a great personality.
