One of these - the history of the British singer Adele. Today it is known and loved in all continents, her voice sounds on the radio, and photos adorn the front pages of leading tabloid world. But could once artist herself thought that her fate is so complex? Probably not. After all, from the very beginning of his career he was the singer Adele's songs and the image that does not fit into the established canons of the world of show business.
Childhood and adolescence

Typically, in this part of the British capital residing immigrants from Arab countries and from poor families. It is the second category belonged the family of the future singer.
About Adele parents know very little. Based on an interview with the singer can be accurately noted only that she was brought up in single-parent family. The father of the singer left the family when she was only three years old. From him the actress was only a pile of plates Ella Fitzgerald, as well as a second name - Blue (full name of the singer - Adele Laurie Blue Adkins). Disappeared from the life of his daughter for many years, the father appeared only when talking about the success of Adele in all parts of Britain. It was at this point in a number of English-language media have an interview with the father of the singer, to which she reacted very violently and ambiguous, noting that "this man has no right to talk about it." Since childhood, the closest people in the life of singer Adele were mother and grandfather. It is they who from an early age the girl cherished desire to sing. Today, it is known that the first public appearance for the future stars of the British stage was the performance of the songs «Rise» (from the repertoire of Gabriel) in one of the school productions. With a strong voice and wide vocal range, she impressed everyone with his ability to sing beautifully, pulling some outrageous notes. She admired friends and acquaintances, but she did not believe in the possibility of success. After all, her figure was far from ideal (until 2008 Artist of the weight is 134 kg), and wealthy sponsors she never had.
Despite this fact, at the urging of friends Adele decided to go for an audition at the famous BRIT School, which had previously been trained Amy Winehouse, Leona Lewis, and many other British stars. Listening proved to be successful, and Adele began to learn music from the best teachers in Britain. In 2006, as homework singer recorded several demo versions of their songs. The compositions were so successful that, without consulting her own, friends of Adele decided to put them on the page Social servisaMySpace. And all would do, but the new songs noticed prominent British producer of the record company XL Recordings.

Success and recognition
However, suddenly a dream come true was quite real. And then began the long climb to the heights of European Adele musical Olympus. The first single of the singer «Hometown Glory» was released in October 2007 and was released a very limited edition. But a year later, he was re-released, and the composition itself nominated for a Grammy Award.
The first performer of a hit was the song «Chasing Pavements», which after only a few weeks after the official release of the second line has reached the national charts in Britain. It is noteworthy that the composition was published in just fourteen days before the release of their debut album was "19", as if specially anticipating it.

Such was the Brit AwardsCritics' Choice Award - an award for young artists do not yet have a studio album. However, this success soon faded before the number of various awards, which fell to the singer after the release of her first album "19".

For a month plate shattered 500,000th copies, earning it the status of "platinum". In total, around the world it sold more than 7 million copies. After such a triumph was followed by a successful tour of the US and Canada, as well as the signing of a contract with an American record label Columbia Records. Looking ahead, it is worth saying that the apogee of the singer album "19" still did not, and all the successes of the first studio album three years later surpassed Adele's second album, titled "21". The number of different kinds of awards that began to pour in to the Briton, as if from the horn of plenty is not listed and is not counted. So today we leave them out of the equation and move on to other important events in the life of the singer.
