Alecia Beth Moore, better known by her stage name P!nk (pronounced Pink), is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Originally a member of the girl group Choice, she rose to fame as an R&B artist with her debut solo album, Can't Take Me Home (2000). The album was certified double platinum in the United States and spawned two Billboard Hot 100 top-ten hits. She gained further recognition with Moulin Rouge! soundtrack "Lady Marmalade", which gave Pink her first Grammy Award as well as her first number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100.
She was born to nurse Judy and insurance salesman Jim Moore, a Vietnam veteran. When she was just a toddler, her parents began having marital problems, and before she was 10 her parents had divorced. Pink developed her voice early in life. In high school, Pink joined her first band, Middleground, but it disbanded upon losing a battle of the bands competition. As a teenager, she wrote lyrics as an outlet for her feelings, and her mother commented, "Her initial writings were always very introspective. Some of it was very black, and very deep, almost worrisome."
Pink and professional motocross racer Carey Hart married in Costa Rica on January 7, 2006.
