Childhood and teenage years
Adele was born on May 5, 1988, in Tottenham, London. Currently, Adele is one of the most famous artists in the world, but few people know how much suffering she accumulated in her childhood when she was abandoned by her father… She was only three years old when her alcoholic father, Mark Evans, left Penny Adkins, his mother, so her childhood and the rest of her life were devoid of a father figure.
Adele started singing at the age of four, being influenced over time by artists such as Destiny Child, Gabrielle, Spice Girls, Pink or The Cure, but also Etta James and Ella Fitzgerald, whose recordings she discovered by chance at the jazz section of the neighborhood music store.
Career beginning and success
In the summer of 2006, four months after graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts & Technology, she received a strange phone call. She had recorded a three-song demo for a school project that she gave to a friend to post on Myspace. After this post, a phone came from XL Recordings. At first, Adele thought it was a joke because she only knew about Virgin Records. In September she was the happy signatory of a contract with XL. In 2007 she received the “Critics’ Choice” at the Brit Awards and in 2008 she released her first album “19”, certified platinum four times in the UK and twice in the USA.
The album “21”, released in 2011, also brought her several Guinness Book records: she is the first artist to sell more than 3 million copies of an album in one year in Great Britain; she is also the first living artist with two places in the Top Five Singles Chart (“Rolling In The Deep” and “Someone like you”, from “21”) and with two places in the Albums Chart (“19” and “21”) simultaneously. And across the ocean, in the USA, Adele became the first woman in history with three singles in the Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 and, simultaneously, two albums in the Top 5 Billboard 200. In 2012, the British woman was listed number five on the VH1 list of the most important women in the music industry, and Time magazine included her in the list of the most influential people in the world.
Adele managed to top the UK album charts in 2021 after her album “30” sold more than 600,000 units. Released on November 19, Adele’s fourth album quickly shot to number one in the UK charts, selling 261,000 copies in its first week. It’s an extremely sensitive album, with Adele confessing about the painful divorce she recently went through.
In 2016 Adele attempted to sell her house in West Sussex, England for $11 million, but she couldn’t find a buyer. In the same year, she purchased a house in Beverley Hills for $9.5 million.
In 2021 Adele paid $58 million for Silvester Stallone’s house in Beverly Park.
Adele and Simon Konecki, the father of her child Angelo, who is almost 10 years old, started dating sometime around 2016 and 3 years later decided to separate, although the divorce was not finalized until 2021.
Although she is a huge artist, she still gets nervous before performing live. That’s why she invented a parallel personality named Sasha Carter.
