Pink

Pink was born in 1979.  Her parents divorced when she was three years old, and she struggled from a young age with drugs.  She ended up dropping out of high school, but then later returned to school and got her G.E.D. (http://www.biography.com/people/pink-562098#pop-singer).

While Pink had a few setbacks and disappointments with early band and music endeavours, she did not give up.

“Her talent was too hard not to notice, and with the support of LaFace, Choice’s former label, she struck out on her own. She changed her name from Alecia Moore to her stage name of Pink, and started recording her first solo album, Can’t Take Me Home. Released in 2000, the record was a surprise smash hit, going double-platinum and creating three Top 10 singles: “Most Girls”, “You Make Me Sick”, and “There You Go.” It was a record that was bolstered by her tour schedule, which found her opening up for popular boy band ‘N Sync” (https://wordpress.com/page/sweetnessbe.wordpress.com/443).
