Raised in Philadelphia not long after her birth on September 8, 1979 in Doylestown, Pennsylvania with the name Alecia Beth Moore, Pink has been familiar to music since she was merely a little child, a result of the influence her father, James Moore, had given her constantly through either his guitar lessons or plays of tunes from the likes of Bob Dylan and Don McLean as she grew up. Later also driven by the work of Madonna, Janis Joplin, Shirley Murdock, plus The Supremes, it really did not require such a long time for the girl to develop a profound interest in the field which led her to eagerly perform onstage whenever possible. A good offer then came from a local Philly DJ to provide back vocals for his rap group, School of Thought, at age 13 and nabbing this chance quickly, she delightfully found herself holding weekly guest appearances at the city's Club Fever.
Much to Pink's surprise, one of her stints there attracted an MCA Records representative who immediately attached her to a newly-developed R&B group, Basic Instinct, but the project did not run well so that she shifted to another called Choice, this time under LaFace Records, only to witness the disbanding of the troupe without any single released. Nonetheless, her alliance with Choice at least had brought her to the realization of her knack in writing songs upon being asked by Darryl Simmons to write the bridge for the trio's composition of "Just to be Loving You." Relying on this skills plus her great vocal range, she boldly approached the label's co-founder, L.A. Reid, and successfully retained her place in the company to finally begin her solo career. Helped by notable names, like She'kspeare, Babyface, Kandi Burruss, and 112, she persistently worked on her materials which then resulted in 'Can't Take Me Home" by April 2000.
