Pierced Voices, 5 Singers with facial Piercings
              Body piercing is a growing trend among celebrities especially musicians and there could be a lot in the list if we have to consider what is hidden beyond what our eyes could see. Although ear piercing is commonly accepted as a normal requirement for the attachment of earrings among women, the act of body piercing has gone beyond our expectations through the years with varied locations in the human body many celebrities have dared to tread like the nose, lower lip, upper lip, nipples and you know where else. Body piercing simply mirrors the trials each personality who adopts it is undergoing, perhaps a sign of protest to feel different from the others, a sign of achievement or simply a reason to be noticed from the rest of the social grouping. I have only recognized two celebrities associated with the word “Pierce” without directly showing the act associated with it and we knew him as the ex-James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan and the R & B singer Beyonce Knowles who aside from the piercing for her earrings which is common to women, adapted the alter ego “Sasha Pierce” in one of her song albums. 

                Below are 5 famous singers employing facial piercing as could be easily recognized as they were delivering their songs. If you could get behind the message of the song lyrics, you will know the ordeals they were undergoing.

Pink

           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.

                                                 

Christina Aguilera                                                                                       

          Born 18 December 1980, Aguilera first got her break at national television in 1990 as a “Star Search” contestant before earning a role in Disney Channel’s “The New Mickey Mouse Club”. She signed up with RCA records after recording a song used in the movie “Mulan”. Christina Aguilera’s singing prowess came to unfold after her debut album “Christina Aguilera” in 1999.

Kelly Clarkson

             Born in 24 April 1982, Kelly Brianne Clarkson had her break at music after winning the first season of the television series American Idol in 2002. Kelly has two Grammys with her albums, her debut album which achieved a double platinum and the second which gained a multi platinum. This month of the year, Kelly was named the most successful American Idol of all time by Billboard based upon album sales and the overall acceptance of the mass audience.

Amy Winehouse

              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).

Jordin Sparks 

               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.
