Adele Laurie Blue Adkins was born in Tottenham, London, on May 5, 1988. She is best known by the mononym stage name Adele.
Her father left when she was two years old, so she was raised by her mother, Penny Adkins.
When she was nine, they moved to Brighton on the south coast of England, before moving back to London in 1999.
She graduated from the BRIT School for Performing Arts & Technology in Croydon in 2006, counting fellow singers Leona Lewis and Jessie J among her classmates there.
While in school, her focus was mainly on going into the A&R side of the music industry, and less on launching her own singing career.
However, she had recorded a three-song demo as part of a class project, and a friend posted the demo onto Myspace, where it became very popular.
As a result of her online exposure, Richard Russell from XL Recordings contacted her, and she signed with them in September 2006.
Adele married Simon Konecki in 2016 after dating for five years. They have one child together, a son who was born in 2012.
