Alecia Beth Moore in real life was born 8 September 1979. Her success is the story of a brilliant artist rising up from the rubbles of her childhood as an asthmatic child. Daring to lead her life the way she chose it, she has quite varied fields of interest as a skateboarder, hip-hopper and gymnast. She started at music as early as 14 years old performing in Philadelphia clubs. Moore then joined a girl band “Choice” at the age of 16 where her singing career took off. After recording an album which appeared on a film soundtrack in 1996, the group disbanded leaving Moore on her own as she remained on a solo act. Keeping the nickname “Pink” given to her by friends owing to her blushing instincts when embarrassed, it would actually become her appropriate mark that identifies her brand of music. A lot has happened ever since and you just have to consider this, Billboard’s Top 40 List of 2010 in Music has Pink on the on the 6th order of highest paid artist of 2009. With an annual income of more than US $36 million excluding promotional endorsements and earnings outside of music, you just have to imagine that.

An English singer-songwriter known for her habit of drug and alcohol aside from her music, Amy Jade Winehouse could be a bad example of a wretched but successful talent (she had been caught sniffing cocaine in between concerts, and about alcohol well, you can’t blame her surname). She was born 14 September 1983 to Jewish parents at the Southgate area of London. Her rise to fame with her career in music was brought by her style of mixing various musical genres in her songs with some touch of jazz. She won a Brit Award for Best British Female Artist in 2007 and the Ivor Novello Award 3 times in 2004 (Best Contemporary Song, Stronger than Me), 2007 (Best Contemporary Song, Rehab) and 2008 (Best Song Musically and Lyrically, Love is a Losing Game).
Another American Idol winner (6th season), Jordin Brianna Sparks was born 22 December 1989 in Glendale, Arizona. Being only 17 at the time of her victory, Jordin was the youngest winner of that prestigious solo singing talent contest. She launched her singing career afterwards following up with a self titled debut album which achieved a platinum. Acknowledging her music sales success, she has won an American Music Award in 2008 and earned a Grammy Award nomination in 2009.
