Belinda first burst onto the scene as lead vocalist for the seminal all-female band The Go-Gos. whose debut long-player Beauty and the Beat is considered as one of the cornerstones of the US New Wave movement.

They made history as the first all-female band who wrote their own songs and played their own instruments to top the Billboard charts and thanks to such hits as Our Lips Are Sealed, We Got The Beat and Vacation, went on to sell seven million albums worldwide
