Composer, singer-songwriter, actor, author, and activist Sting 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 studio albums, earned six Grammy Awards and two Brits, and was inducted into The Rock and

Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. 

As one of the world’s most distinctive solo artists, Sting has received an additional 10 Grammy Awards, two

Brits, a Golden Globe, an Emmy, three Oscar nominations, a TONY nomination, Billboard Magazine’s Century

Award, and MusiCares 2004 Person of the Year. Also a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, in December

2014 he received the Kennedy Center Honors, one of the most prestigious cultural prizes in the United States.

Throughout his enduring career, he has sold close to 100 million albums from his combined work with The

Police and as a solo artist.

Sting’s support for human rights organizations such as the Rainforest Fund, Amnesty International and Live Aid

mirrors his art in its universal outreach.  Along with wife Trudie Styler, Sting founded the Rainforest Fund in

1989 to protect both the world’s rainforests and the indigenous people living there.  Together they have held 17

benefit concerts to raise funds and awareness for our planet’s endangered resources, with the next event

scheduled for December 14 at Carnegie Hall. Since its inception, the Rainforest Fund has expanded to a

network of interconnected organizations working in more than 20 countries over three continents.
