Adele was born on the 5th of May, 1988, in Tottenham, London, the United Kingdom to an English mother, Penny Adkins, and a Welsh father, Marc Evans; and is, therefore, aged 31.

Adele spent most of her childhood days in London, where she was born; and Brighton, where her mother once worked as a furniture maker and an adult-learning activities organizer.
Unlike a vast majority of kids who spent their days reading their favorite children storybooks, Adele spent a huge chunk of her early days singing and writing songs. Her mother was highly supportive of her musical talent and was at hand to purchase musical CDs of some of the biggest stars in the world as at then. All those activities proved helpful in sharpening her to the singer she is today.
Adele began her professional music career in 2008 when she released her debut album, ’19’. The album featured two popular lead singles “Hometown Glory” and “Chasing Pavements” which propelled her to overnight fame.
The same year, she signed a deal with Columbia Records and XL Recordings for her foray into the United States. Later that year, her world tour ‘An Evening with Adele’ began which lasted till June 2009.
She released her second and the much-anticipated studio album titled ‘21 in 2009’, again named for her age when she recorded it. The album was a success and she received much appreciation for its classic American R&B and jazz style. Anchored by hits like “Rolling in the Deep” and ‘Someone Like You” the record was a monster hit worldwide.
The album’s another single “Set Fire to the Rain” became Adele’s third No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100.
In 2012, she composed and recorded the theme song titled “Skyfall’ for the eponymous James Bond film. Upon its release, the song became a chartbuster and rose to No. 2 on the UK Singles Chart.
Currently, Adele holds a total of 15 Grammy Awards and 3 Guinness World Records. She was Billboard’s ‘Artist of the Year’ in 2011 and 2012 as her album, ’21’, topped the US album charts for twenty-three consecutive weeks.

The single ‘Hello’ charted iTunes Single in 85 countries and the album ’25’ was on No.1 on iTunes Album Chart in 77 countries on pre-order sales alone. ‘Hello’ broke the record for most Shazams in 24 hours and the video broke the record for the most views on Vevo in 24 hours.
