Who is Pink’s vocal coach?
My name is Ron Anderson. I am a voice teacher. Why do we need a technique? Because you will never get through a two hours concert if don’t have it. Pop artists come to me because they don’t have the training. And once they start to achieve the training, their registration opens up, the range grows, and the voice goes towards where it should go. We have to take care of our bodies, take care of our voices, watch, be careful, not to get sick. And I bring that back into the pop world. I worked with Pink many years ago. And she was really just becoming known. She was an amazing girl. She’d very strong will, very opinionated of what she was, and how she was. And she was right on the money. She knew exactly who she was and how to go there. Especially in performance.
Who is Pink? A strong woman confidently at the top of the music industry
Pink (Alecia Beth Moore, born September 8, 1979) is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, actress, and producer. Currently, she is referred to as one of the most popular pop-singers in the world. She is known for her distinctive, raspy voice and impressive stage performances, rich in choreography and special effects. Music and shows are her elements. Even as a little girl, she showed an above-average interest in music. Little Alecia wanted to sing the most. She performed in a gospel choir and also danced.
As a teenager, she began writing her first texts that were distinguished by their dark and disturbing nature. It was due to a difficult childhood in a failing parents’ marriage. Her hot temperament also caused educational problems. But it is what makes her unique in the world of music. And also makes her work so unique. A strong woman fulfilling her dreams of conquering the show business’ world inspires and arouses admiration among fans around the world.
R&B beginnings and her widely misunderstood image
For Pink, music became a way to break away from everyday life. She wrote her first song when she was fourteen years old. Two years later, she joined the female group “Choice” performing R&B music. The girls were noticed by the famous American composer and producer Antonio Reid, known for his cooperation with Mariah Carey, Avril Lavigne, Rihanna, and Usher, among others. After signing a contract with Choice, Reid offered a solo career to Alecia herself. She took the nickname “Pink” and in 2000 she recorded her first album entitled “Can’t Take Me Home.” The album turned out to be a multi-platinum major hit worldwide. However, the singer herself was not satisfied with the results of the cooperation, because she had virtually no influence on the record. So she decided to make her childhood dream come true and persuade her idol – Linda Perry of „4 Non-Blondes” to cooperate.
Finally herself, the success of the Artist’s Rock Incarnation. Music with a rock claw
After long insistence, Perry was finally persuaded to work together, and jointly with Pink, she began writing songs for her second album. This time, the singer wanted to record a more rock album with music to suit more her personality. The album “Missundaztood” was released in 2001 without the participation of Reid, who allegedly was not satisfied with the chosen direction. It turned out that the fans liked the rocker, more predatory incarnation of the artist, much more than her pop image.
The album brought Pink a mega-star status. It’s been sold 13 million copies worldwide. The singer went on a multi-month tour. She also received many industry awards. Going after the blow, in 2004, Pink released her third album – “Try This”, which maybe did not repeat the success of “Missundaztood”, but brought the singer a Grammy Award. Subsequent releases “I’m Not Dead” (2006) and “Funhouse” (2008) cemented Pink’s status as one of the most popular stars around the world.
