Pink and her history with Australia
The singer has long been associated with Australia and the Oceania region. Since her first solo album was released, her music has proven very popular in the Oceanian markets, with all of her albums reaching Platinum status in the region.
Apart from her music, she has also participated in other noteworthy activities in the region. In 2007, she lent her voice to the PETA campaign against the practice of mulesing in the Australian wool industry. Since 2008, the singer has also been an advocate for RSPCA Australia.
Over the years, Pink has also donated money to organizations such as Red Cross Bushfire Appeal to support brushfire victims.
In an interview with US Weekly, Pink said Australia was her 'second home':
"Australia is my second home, so that was a no-brainer. I'm a Californian and fires are terrifying, and you got to do the right thing."
Tracing Pink's musical career
The singer broke onto the music scene with her debut single, There You Go, released in 2000, which became a Billboard Hot 100 char-topper, peaking at number 7.
Her debut studio album, Can't Take Me Home, released later that year in April, became a commercial success, with a generally positive reception from critics.
However, it was her second album, Missundaztood, released in 2001 independently in collaboration with artist Linda Perry of 4 Non Blondes fame, which gained her critical acclaim. Critics praised the album's raw blues-infused pop-rock sound. It was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album at the 45th Annual Grammy Awards.
Since 2007, the singer has gained recognition for her live circus-influenced concert performances and her contributions to film and TV show soundtracks, such as a cover of White Rabbit for the movie Alice through the Looking Glass.
