As a singer, Mandy Moore has reached number 41 on the Billboard Hot 100 with her first single Candy. Her love for music began when she was a child, mainly inspired by the musical Oklahoma! After seeing the musical, she decided to pursue a career in the performing arts. Fortunately, she had everything she needed to take off and see where she stands today.
Already in 2009 Billboard announced that Mandy Moore had sold over ten million copies worldwide, and by 2012 she was ranked 96th on the VH1 list of the “100 Greatest Women in Music” in addition to her 63rd place on the list of the “Sexiest Artists of All Time”.
Her successful singing career led to an equally remarkable acting career when she made a big entrance into the film world in 2002 with her first leading role in the film A Walk to Remember. Prior to that, she appeared in her first feature film, where she played a small vocal role in the comedy Dr. Dolittle 2 and also appeared in the comedy The Princess Diaries, both in 2001. Her role as Rebecca Pearson in the award-winning NBC show This Is Us, which she has been playing since 2016, is one of her more recent works. Her performance in the series earned her a nomination for a Golden Globe Award in the category of Best Supporting Actress – Series, Miniseries, or Television Film at the 74th Golden Globe Awards.
