Mandy Moore was born April 10, 1984, in Nashua, New Hampshire. She found her love of singing when she went to a summer musical camp when she was nine years old. After seeing the musical "Oklahoma!" she decided that she wanted to pursue a career in singing.
Determined to be an entertainer from the age of six onward, she then began voice lessons and auditioning for plays in the local theaters and got her first role as Ngana in "South Pacific". She has appeared in over a dozen plays in the Central Florida area and has had lead roles in "Bye Bye Birdie" and "Guys and Dolls".
She was later known throughout the Orlando area as the "National Anthem Girl" for her regular performances of "The Star Spangled Banner" at local sporting events such as high school basketball, Chris Evert's Pro-Celebrity Tennis, Orlando Magic games, and even minor league baseball.
Mandy spent three years dancing and being a cheerleader for Pop Warner Football between age 12 and 15. At the age of 15, while she was recording in a studio in Orlando, a Fed-Ex worker who happened to be passing through heard her and was interested in her talent. He also happened to know someone at Sony as well. Moore worked on cutting a demo and shortly thereafter signed a record deal with Sony 550 Music.
Mandy rose to celebrity status after touring with N-Sync and the Backstreet Boys. Her debut single, 'Candy', sold half a million copies, many of the sales attributable to a promotional website that registered over 100,000 'hits' a day at its peak. Sales of 'Candy' were enough to convince 550 Music to rush release of So Real, her debut album, before the end of the millennium. The album, I Wanna Be With You, was repackaged with the addition of five new songs, the following June.
A self-titled sophomore effort appeared in summer 2001. As her touring and recording schedule demanded more of her time, Moore withdrew from Bishop Moore Catholic High School in Orlando in 2000 and opted for a tutor/correspondence at age 16. She has stated that her education is important to her and says that the fact that she wants to go to college motivates her to continue with her schooling. Though Moore's record sales are not up in the ranks of Britney Spears, Mariah Carey, Avril Lavigne, Christina Aguilera, or even Kelly Clarkson, she has proved to be a formidable talent both in singing and in acting.
Mandy's new songs reveal her rapid and impressive development as a vocalist. At the heart of her new album is a brand-new single, "I Wanna Be With You.".
Mandy likes all kinds of music, especially the songs of other female singers like Lauryn Hill, Madonna, Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston. She is also learning to play guitar with an eye toward writing her own songs. Recently, Mandy has turned her attention to Hollywood with several new film roles, and it is uncertain if this is her new direction of ambition.
