Sting

With multiple hit albums and the Brand New Day world tour in 2001, Sting remains a force in the music business after a 25-year career. Born Gordon Sumner in England in 1951, Sting played in numerous jazz bands before forming The Police in 1976.

As lead singer and songwriter of the Police, Sting gained worldwide fame before establishing his solo career in 1984. Sting's albums are a mix of musical genres, reflecting his mastery of jazz, reggae and rock. Sting was recently inducted into the National Academy of Popular Music's Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Sting's soulful lyrics often focused on societal problems, and he has worked for many charities on and off the stage. Sting's most notable causes include the environment and indigenous peoples. He established the Rainforest Foundation in 1989 to help protect the forests and people of the Amazon.




Sting has received various humanitarian awards, such as the Gabriela Mistral Medal from the government of Chile and the Kahlil Gibran Spirit of Humanity Award from the Arab American Institute.
