Adele Bio

British diva Adele touches the hearts of millions with her soulful singing style and powerfully emotional yet catchy songs like Rolling in the Deep and Someone Like You. Find out how the 23-year-old songstress became a singing sensation in her Kidzworld bio!

Baby Spice

Adele Laurie Blue Adkins grew up in London, England to a single teenage mother who later became a furniture-maker  and activies organizer. Even when she was very young, Adele always knew that singing was her passion, and her biggest inspiration was the mega girl pop group the Spice Girls! She has said they “made me what I am today.”

School , Singing, Signed

Adele attended the The BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology alongside other talented teens like Leona Lewis and Jessie J.! Adele took a keen interest in music and began writing songs and releasing demos, and it wasn’t long until she got noticed, and was getting a call from a record exec at XL Recordings (she was so amazed, she thought it must be a hoax!) By the end of her graduating year she was signed, and by 2007 had dropped her first official album: Hometown Glory!

England to America

In her homeland Adele was being heralded as one of the best vocalists to top the charts, and a singer who could truly revive the soul genre, but in America she was still unheard of, so her next challenge was to spread her sound across the pond. It seemed tricky at first, but a guest spot on Saturday Night Liveas the musical guest placed her firmly in the minds of Americans who couldn’t stop singing her songs, and her single “Chasing Pavements” climbed 25 spots up the Billboard Charts. Adele then went on to win Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocals at the Grammys.

21

Gaining recognition allowed Adele to get involved with charity work, like the VH1 Divas concert to raise money for the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and other charities helping underprivileged children overseas. She also produced a second record that (literally) broke records called 21, featuring the songs Rolling in the Deep and Someone Like You, It was the best selling record in the U.S. this year!  Adele said it was more based in roots and country music, but still with her recognisable soul flare. And even artists like Beyoncé are citing Adele as a vocal inspiration.
