Does the name Alecia Beth Moore ring a bell to you, what if I were to say Pink, would that make a deference? This amazingly talented young lady has had a career in music since she was 14-years-old. Coming to prominence in 2000, with her debut album “Can’t Take Me Home” Pink had already established herself in the industry as a star-of-the-future. Her early years saw her in an all-girl-band called “Choice” who signed up with the record label “LaFace Records”. The band flew to Atlanta to record an album with producer L A Reid, but at a Christmas party Reid gave a young Alecia a choice of her own, either go solo, or go home.
Her debut “Can’t Take Me Home” went “double-platinum” in the states had had two “Billboard Hot 100” top ten songs, “There You Go” and “Most Girls”. Then her first number 1 hit came when she participated in the “Moulin Rouge” soundtrack with the La Belle song “Lady Marmalade”, the song also gave Pink her first “Grammy Award”. By the end of 2000, she was well on her way to superstardom. Her next release the album “Missundaztood” sold more than 12-million-copies world-wide and sporned 3 more US-top-ten singles with “Get The Party Started”, “Don’t Let Me Get Me” and “Just Like A Pill”.
As a child she had a rough time of it, by the age of 10 her parents, Judy and Jim Moore had divorced having a major effect on the young Alecia. In her teenage years she started to write lyrics to help relieve her feelings, an outlet for her. Her mother once said “Her initial writings were always very introspective. Some of it was very black, and very deep. Almost worrisome”. A mother’s love for her daughter never feigns, But Alecia came through this period and went on to prosper as an adult.
Pinks father Jim, a Vietnam veteran, had a great influence on her as she was growing up. Her powerful voice and musical abilities she credits to her father, in her own words “He is responsible for who I am now” renowned for her amazing voice and dance/gymnastic abilities Pink has been a crowd favorite for the last two decades. An incredible live performer she gives 1000% when she is on stage and never leaves the audience wanting.
In the clip below, she is joined on stage by her father Jim to perform a song he had written over 40 years ago. The song “I Have Seen The Rain” was written about Jim’s experience during the conflict in Vietnam where he was stationed. The song had never been performed before and this was Dads first ever large stage performance. Turn up the volume and enjoy a father and daughter duo like you have never heard before.
