October 2, 1951 in Wallsend
Wallsend, United Kingdom
singer, songwriter & member of The Police
Born in Wallsend, England in 1951, Sting began his career with the Police before striking out on his own with a solo album in 1985. With its jazz backup and Sting on guitar, the sound was more mature than the Police and catapulted the artist to stardom, where he remained for a solid 10 years. He released a double album and a documentary in 1986, while also attempting a failed reunion with the Police. Sting released albums in 1987, 1991, 1993, 1994, 1996, 2003, 2009 and 2013, with the last album also being released as a musical in 2014.

I see it as Christ in the manger with Mary. He is a baby 100% God and 100%. Man The humanness reflected in CRYING out for His mother, the GODness reflected in the world in SORROW needing salvation through Him as our savior. Mary never left His side through anything from His miracles to His death which BRIDGES us through suffering to eternal life. Though we are the ACCUSED sinners, we also find hope and all our human strength to fight through our path to heaven through Him who loves us enough to perfect us in Him. It's a lullaby between a mother and child, the mother of God and her son, but simultaneously a song of love and hope for all mankind. It's Christmas.
