Date of birth: May 5, 1988 (Age: 28)
British singer Adele (Adele Laurie Blue Adkins) is known all over the world. She couldn’t even think that she would become so popular because from the very beginning of her career her voice, songs and image didn’t correspond to the rules of show business.
A future celebrity was born on 5 May 1988 in Tottenham, London. As a rule in this district poor families live and Adele’s family was the same. She was brought up only by her mother; her father appeared in the life of a singer only when her name became well known. Adele doesn’t like to speak about her childhood and family.
Her beautiful voice was noticed from childhood. The first public performance of the girl was at one of school concerts where she sang a song Rise. She had a strong voice and broad vocal range; Adele songs impressed everyone. Her friends admired her talent, however Adele couldn’t believe into her success. A great trouble was her figure. Her body measurements were not ideal and till the beginning of 2008 her weight was 134 kg.
Despite this fact Adele entered BRIT School for Performing Arts & Technology and successfully graduated from it. In 2006 Adele recorded three demo-versions of songs. The compositions were so successful that her friends without telling Adele posted them on MySpace. Her songs were noticed by the producers of a famous company XL Recordings. As the singer confessed later, when she received a call from the main office of this company she was shocked and thought that it was just a joke. So, in such a way started her way to fame.
In 2007 Adele released the first song Hometown Glory. In a year this composition was nominated for Grammy Award. Later the song Chasing Pavements became the singer’s real hit in Britain and stayed on the top of the chart for a long time.

After this triumph Adele toured in the USA and Canada.
The second album ‘21’ which was released in 2011 exceeded all the expectations. Adele received a great number of awards and nominations.
