An accomplished singer, Pearl had previously provided background vocals on several of her father's tours as well as for MÖTLEY CRÜE as one of the "Crüe Sluts". She can also be heard singing a duet with Meat Loaf on Meat's "Couldn't Have Said It Better" CD, in the track "Man of Steel" (co-written by MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx).
