About Adele

Multi-Grammy winning English singer-songwriter Adele rose to fame with the release of her debut album 19 in 2008. It certified four times platinum in the UK, and double platinum in the US. Her career in the US was boosted by a Saturday Night Live appearance in late 2008. Her second album 21 was well received critically and surpassed the success of her debut, earning the singer six Grammy Awards in 2012 including Album of the Year, equaling the record for most Grammy Awards won by a female artist in one night.

She was born Adele Laurie Blue Adkins on May 5, 1988 in North London, England to Penny Adkins and Mark Evans, the only child of Adkins, an "arty mom" who was just 18 at the time of her birth, and Welsh father Evans who left the family when Adele was only 3 years old.

When she was 14, Adele recorded a cover of the Blondie song "Heart of Glass" at the suggestion of her stepfather. Realizing that she wanted to pursue music, Adele auditioned successfully for the British Record Industry Trust (BRIT) School of Performing Arts and Technology. Within three days of graduating from the alma mater of such performers as Amy Winehouse and Leona Lewis, Adele was offered a recording contract with XL records after a record executive heard one of her demos posted by a friend on MySpace.

Adele released her first studio album in 2008 at age 19, a significant number which also became the album's title. In 2009, her debut album 19 was nominated for 4 Grammy awards, of which she won 2. On January 24, 2011, Adele's sophomore album, 21 was released and ultimately sold over 18 million copies, making it the top selling album of the 21st century. The album was number 1 on the Billboard charts for 21 consecutive weeks, surpassing Whitney Houston's record for a number 1 album by a female artist. Adele's single Rolling in the Deep became the top selling single of 2011. On February 12, 2012, Adele won all 6 Grammy Awards she was nominated for, including Album, Record, and Song of the Year with Rolling in the Deep.


Personal Life

Adele's personal life has had a prominent impact on her music; she is not shy to admit that 21 was the result of a failed relationship with a man ten years her senior. Adele has not revealed the man's identity. Although acknowledging that she enjoyed the spotlight when she was younger, fame is not a priority for Adele.

It was reported in January 2012 that Adele had recently begun dating charity entrepreneur Simon Konecki. In June 2012, Adele announced that she and Konecki were expecting a baby. Adele gave birth to the couple's son in October 2012. The child is the first for Adele, but the second for Konecki, who also has a daughter with his ex-wife.
