Adele Laurie Blue Adkins Singing from childhood
On May 5, 1988, 18-year-old Penny Adkins gave birth to a baby girl naming her Adele Laurie Blue Adkins. She grew up in a single-mother household after her father Mark Evans left when she was only three years old. Her father also had a son Cameron Evans which is Adele’s half-brother.
Her mother, Penny Adkins, worked as a furniture maker, sometimes as a masseuse, and as an adult learning activities organizer to stay afloat. Her father, Mark Evans, passed away in 2021 after battling cancer.
Adele started singing at four years old, imitating the voices of the Spice Girls. According to her, it was this famous girl band that helped in the formation of Adele as an artist. Later she performed on stage at school and was involved in various school productions.
The singer did not think about her professional career, but she wanted to engage in learning from other artists. At 13, Adele bought copies of Ella Fitzgerald and Etta James, and two years later, she began to master the guitar.
According to some reports, at the age of 13-14, Adele Laurie Blue Adkins successfully applied to The London School for Performing Arts & Technology, Brit School. Adele also attended the Brit School simultaneously as Leona Lewis and Jessie J.
If not for her friend who posted on Myspace Adele’s demos, recorded in his school years. Perhaps the world would not have learned about such a talented English singer-songwriter as Adele, and she might not have won 15 Grammy Awards and 12 Brit Awards, as well as an Oscar.
Debut album “19” and Grammy Award
The first song heard on the Internet was the composition of Hometown Glory. Adele wrote this song at 16 for one of the school productions. The song fell into the hands of the producers of XL Recordings, with whom Adele signed a contract.
At 18, she released the same composition as a single for her debut album and immediately gained popularity and the British Critics’ Choice Award.
A year later, the debut single, Hometown Glory and Chasing Pavements came out. In January 2008, Adele’s first album called “19” became platinum.
Adele won her first two Grammy Awards in 2009: Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for her “Chasing Pavements” hit.
Second album “21.”
In early 2011, the Grammy awards singer and songwriter presented the British public with a second studio album, “21”. Music critics noted that there was more country-style music than pop in the new album. However, this experiment was a success!
The second single, Someone Like You, which Adele presented at the Brit Awards ceremony, soon topped the charts. The “21” disc fell into the top five of the most successful releases in Britain ever.
And in September, the singer-songwriter made her debut at Royal Albert Hall as part of her Adele Live tour. Adele underwent surgery the same year, but this did not prevent her from recovering in the shortest possible time to participate in the Billboard Music Awards ceremony.
There Adele won 12 Awards and made a splash! And on this, the same year, the awards did not end!
