Sting was born October 2, 1951 in England. He is considered by many to be one of the best love songwriters of our time. He initially was lead singer and writer for the immensely popular and explosive band, The Police. In 1984, the band broke up with Sting owning all the song rights and continuing the pursuit of a solo career.His first solo album, Dream of the Blue Turtles was released in 1985 to very high critical acclaim. This is considered by many when Sting ventured off into a Jazz music obsession. This album sold over 2 million in sales and produced 3 top ten hits, "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free," "Fortress Around Your Heart" and "Love Is the Seventh Wave." Soon after, Sting hit the road promoting his album and was even personally shocked at the success. He was so shocked that he even released a tour documentary entitled Bring on the Night.
Not only was Sting a successful music superstar, he was also a humanitarian by being part of such efforts as Amnesty International, Live Aid, Band Aid, and Rainforest Foundation.

In 1993, Sting released a less dark album entitled, Ten Summoner Tales, which still managed to have a few top 20 hits including "If I Ever Lose My Faith In You," and "Fields of Gold." Sting then dabbled in a music soundtrack with Bryan Adams and Rod Stewart in the song "All For Love" for the film, The Three Musketeers. This single hit the top of the charts.
However, in 1999, Sting came back stronger than ever and released "A Brand New Day" which became a smash hit. He earned 2 Grammy Awards and in the process he somehow defeated the immensely popular Ricky Martin. Sting's latest album, Sacred Love, was released in September 2003. Just before the release, Sting was made a CBE by Queen Elizabeth II for services to the music industry. In November he published his memoirs entitled Broken Music.
