Need to know facts about Adele and Simon
When Adele’s brassy, sultry contralto burst upon the music world in 2008, few could believe they were hearing the voice of a 19-year-old Londoner. But no one could doubt the authenticity of her soulful musings, which propelled the young singer to win eight Grammys and release the best-selling album of the new millennium.
Adele attended the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology, which is also credited with turning out artists like Leona Lewis and Amy Winehouse. It was following a three song demo a friend posted on Myspace that she secured a deal from XL Recordings which saw the debut release of 19 which entered the British Charts at number one.
Her second album 21 released 24 Jan 2011 in the UK and 22 Feb in the US, that was inspired by the break-up with her former partner, went on to be no.1 in more than 26 countries. It beats Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ as the UK’s fifth biggest selling album of all time.
In Oct 2011 Adele suffered a vocal haemorrhage, for which she subsequently underwent successful laser microsurgery at Massachusetts General Hospital in the US.
Simon already has a five year old daughter with ex-wife stylist Clary Fisher.
He attended and graduated from the prestigious boys school Eton, served as director of investment group EBS and palled around with socialites and millionaire entrepreneurs.
He is currently CEO for Charity Drop4Drop.
Congratulations to you both on the fabulous news you are having a baby!
