Spotted performing at Monaco's Red Cross gala in early August 2005 while also was busy to hold her 2005 Summer Encore Tour around Europe, Anastacia set out to hit the U.S. market through the release of her self-titled album on August 30, 2005. As she already came up with some music videos which featured 4 tracks of the upcoming album, it was expected that this particular piece of work would repeat the success of her two previous albums. Looking upon her accomplishment in making collaboration with Ben Moody on "Everything Burns," the soundtrack of the 2005 blockbuster superhero movie "Fantastic Four," the road ahead would surely run smoothly for her.

Born on September 17, 1973 in Chicago, Illinois, Anastacia Lyn Newkirk is the second daughter of Robert Newkirk and Diane Hurley. Since her parents were deeply involved in the entertainment industry, she gradually developed an interest in arts, especially singing and dancing. "I come from a very artistic family," she said. "My father was a singer on the Catskills hotel and East Coast nightclub circuits. My mother is an actress who worked in musical theater and on Broadway. It wasn't as though I've wanted to be a singer all my life, but I grew up in an atmosphere of artistic expression and encouragement."
