Belinda Jo Carlisle (born August 17, 1958) is a Grammy Award-nominated American singer and best-selling author. Carlisle gained worldwide fame as the lead vocalist of The Go-Go's, who made history as the first all-female music group to write their own songs and play their own instruments to top the Billboard charts. The Go-Go's are considered by some to be the most successful all-female band of all time. As part of the Go-Go's, Carlisle sold more than seven million albums, and later went on to a successful solo career that spawned hits such as "Mad About You," "Summer Rain," "I Get Weak," "Leave a Light On" and "Heaven Is a Place on Earth", which topped the charts internationally, including in the United States and United Kingdom. Her autobiography, Lips Unsealed, released in June 2010, reached No. 27 on the New York Times Bestseller List and received favorable reviews. As part of The Go-Go's, Carlisle will be receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in August 2011.
