Composer, singer, author, actor, activist Sting (Gordon Sumner) was born in Newcastle, England, before moving to London in 1977 to form The Police with Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers. The band released five albums, earned six Grammy awards and, in 2003, was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Since 1985, Sting has released 13 solo albums. To commemorate the 25th anniversary of his solo career, "25 Years," the definitive box set collection and the double disc, "The Best Of 25 Years," were recently released. "Sting 25," the free iPad App, is also now available on iTunes and features exclusive all-star performances from his 60th birthday benefit concert, plus rare interviews, photos, music videos and more.
Sting has sold nearly 100 million albums from his combined work with the Police and as a solo artist, and has earned an additional 10 Grammy awards, a Golden Globe, an Emmy, and three Oscar nominations.
