Adele Laurie Blue Adkins is a singer-songwriter from London, England. Born on May 5, 1988, the 33-year-old pop sensation first gained the attention of the masses with her breakout hit “Rolling in the Deep.” However, she’s had a successful career in music since long before that song – and her Grammy-winning album 21 – were released in 2011.
Adele has now released three studio albums, with the third being 25, which came out in 2015. She’s won 15 Grammy Awards and nine Brit Awards, been named “Artist of the Year” by Billboard, and even been featured on the TIME magazine list of the most influential people in the world for multiple years. She’s even won an Academy Award thanks to her Bond theme, “Skyfall,” her first song to be featured in a blockbuster film.
