Sting is a singer, songwriter and actor and was born Gordon Matthew Sumner, in London, England.
Sting is former vocalist and lyricist of The Police, his first film role came in Quadrophenia (1978), and his first hit song was "Spread A Little Happiness" (1982), taken from the soundtrack of the television film Brimstone and Treacle, in which he also starred.
His debut solo album, "The Dream of the Blue Turtles" (1985), topped both the UK and US music charts. He has been heavily involved with campaigns benefiting the environment and saving the rain forests, and with Amnesty International; in 1989 Sting was a keynote speaker at the 2nd annual Human Rights Awards ceremony.
Later albums include "Soul Cages" (1991), which reached No. 1 on the UK music charts, and "Mercury Falling" (1996). Feature films include "Dune" (1984), "Stormy Monday" (1988), "The Grotesque" (1995), and a cameo in "Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels" (1999).
Sting's career shows no sign of slowing down: his 1999 album and tour, "Brand New Day," met with widespread critical and popular acclaim. At the Grammy Awards in February 2000, "Brand New Day" won Best Pop Album, while Sting collected the award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for the hit single, also entitled "Brand New Day." He won again in the same category the following year, for "She Walks This Earth (Soberana Rosa)," a song he recorded for a tribute album to the Brazilian composer Ivan Lins, "A Love Affair: The Music of Ivan Lins."
In 2003, The Police was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
