Adele is an english singer-songwriter who was born on the 5th of may 1988 in London (United Kingdom). She began singing at the age of 4 years old and wrote her first song at 16. In 2006, Adele graduated from the BRIT school and a few days later, XL recordings offered her a record deal. The label discovered her as a result of her friend posting three demo tracks on myspace. In 2008, her debut album 19 was released to critically acclaim. The first record included her two first hits “Hometown Glory” and “Chasing Pavements”. The album won her the “best new artist” grammy in 2009. Her following album was very much anticipated and did not disappoint. 21 came out in 2011 and completely exceeded expectations by winning all 6 Grammys she was nominated for. It also became the fourth best selling album of all time in the UK with hits such as “Rolling in the Deep”, “Someone Like you” and “Set Fire to the Rain”. In 2012, Adele performed on the James Bond theme song “Skyfall” for which she won an Oscar and a Gloden Globe. In 2015, the artist released her third album 25. The album’s production was very different than her previous work as it included electronic and R&B elements as well as different rhythmic patterns. The record was the best-selling of 2015. The singles “Hello” and “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” demonstrated her vocal abilities and her crafting of lyrics over pop.
Most of her songs are about love while every one of her albums have been snapshots of her life and experiences.
