Pink Receives Two Grammy Nominations

NEW YORK (Top40 Charts/ Jive Records) - P!nk has earned two Grammy Award nominations for Best Pop Vocal Album for her fifth studio album Funhouse and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for her hit single "Sober." The accomplished singer/songwriter/performer has previously won two Grammy Awards for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance for "Trouble" in 2003, and Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals in 2001 for "Lady Marmalade."

The nominations come at the heels of the final leg of P!nk's successful, sold-out worldwide Funhouse tour. Celebrated and recognized for her innovative, daring and engaging songs and performances, P!nk (Alecia Moore) has earned critical acclaim for both the Funhouse album and tour. "Sober" was a Top 5 stalwart on Billboard's Pop chart with over 1.8 million combined digital/mobile units and the chart-topping album has impressively sold over five million units worldwide, spawning several hits including the smash hit, "So What," "Please Don't Go," the title track and the hauntingly provocative, "I Don't Believe You."

Always in step with her fans, P!nk recently released the "Funhouse Tour Live In Australia" DVD. It captures her inspiring performances and brings to life what fans have loved and critics everywhere have universally praised. The New York Times exclaimed that "Even in an era of escalating pop spectacle, Pink's 'Funhouse' tour is going to be hard to top...Onstage she was a down-to-earth superwoman," and the Chicago Tribune enthusiastically agrees "Pink combines showmanship with her powerhouse vocals, for an evening worth the price of admission."

Since her debut in 2000, P!nk has been widely hailed as a fearlessly talented singer/songwriter,. To date, the Pennsylvania native has sold 30 million albums cumulatively worldwide. Her previous albums include: her four million-unit selling debut, Can't Take Me Home (2000); her sophomore follow-up, M!ssundaztood (2001) which sold 11 million worldwide; the 2.7 million worldwide seller Try This (2003), and I'm Not Dead (2006), which sold over 5 million units globally and spawned two No. 1 hits "Who Knew" and "U + Ur Hand."
