Alecia Beth Moore, better known by her stage name P!nk (also written as Pink), is an American singer-songwriter who first gained prominence in early January of 2000. She is most often recognized by her unique, unorthodox fashion sense and soulful sound. Named #12 in the UK Music Hall of Fame of the 21st century, her vocal skills have often been compared to that of the late Janis Joplin, whom P!nk cites as one of her idols. Pink is a vegetarian, and is a prominent campaigner for PETA. She has contributed her voice towards many things for the group, such as a protest against KFC, she has sent a letter to Prince William criticizing him for fox hunting, and one to the Queen for the use of real fur (bearskin) on the footguards.
