Singer Fergie was born Stacy Ferguson on March 27, 1975, in Hacienda Heights, California. She started out appearing in commercials and on the cast of Kids Incorporated in 1984. She joined the hip-hop rock band the Black Eyed Peas and their 2003 album, Elephunk, became a hit, driven by singles like "Where Is The Love?" and "Hey Mama." More recently, the band released popular songs such as "My Humps" and "I Gotta Feeling."
In 2006, Fergie fulfilled a dream she had since her Wild Orchid days - making her own solo album. With The Dutchess, she reached the top of the charts with such hits as "London Bridge," "Glamorous" and "Big Girls Don't Cry." Fergie shows off her ability to handle diverse styles and moods on the recording, from emotional ballads to hip-hop infused dance tracks to songs with reggae-flavored undertones.
Fergie has continued to pursue a solo career. She contribute the song "A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)" to the Great Gatsby soundtrack in 2013. The following year, Fergie released the single "L.A. Love (La La)." Her follow-up album to the hugely successful The Dutchess is expected in 2015.
