Hitting the big time as leading lady of “Black Eyed Peas,” Grammy Award winner Fergie has been mastering a solo career in her spare time since 2006. Her debut solo CD, “The Dutchess,” produced five Billboard Hot 100 hits, including “London Bridge,” “Fergalicious,” and “Glamorous.” Fergie has taken home the MTV Video Music Award for Best Female Artist in 2007, the Juno Award for Best International Album in 2008, and the Teen Choice Award for Summer: Celebrity Dancer in 2009. A native Californian, Stacy Ann Ferguson studied dance from a young age, during which time she was also a cheerleader. Fergie’s break into music and acting included a few small parts in shows like “Married…with Children,” and “Kids Incorporated,” and a stint in an all-girl band, “Wild Orchard.”

Fergie will be back touring with the “Black Eyed Peas” between February and April 2010, jump-starting their tour in Atlanta, Georgia. After completing their North American tour in Vancouver, British Columbia on April 11, the group will head to Europe to perform the rest of their 100-show tour.
