How did Adele earn her money and wealth?
Adele was born on the 5th of May in 1988 to Penny Adkins and Marc Evans in the city of Tottenham in London. Her mother was of English origin and father was Welsh. Adele’s real name is Adele Laurie Blue Adkins. She was brought up by her mother since the age of two after her father left them. Little Adele stepped into the world of singing and music since a very tender age of 4. After her father’s flight, Adele’s mother Penny started working as a furniture maker and an adult-learning activities organizer. They later shifted to the south coast town of Brighton in England.
After a couple of relocations within London, Adele and Penny finally found a home in West Norwood, London. In the May of 2006, Adele graduated from the infamous BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in Croydon. It was from there that she started getting into the musical realm on a serious note following a demo recording of hers as a part of the class assignment was uploaded to MySpace by a friend of hers. Some record executives got to hear her and soon after graduation Adele was signed for her debut album “19”. This changed her career and life forever. The year of 2018 saw the rise of a new star who stood out from the rest of the lot for her unparalleled voice and unique style. It was in the same year that she performed on “Saturday Night Live”. This performance took her a notch up and her album shot up to the top list of the ‘most downloaded albums on iTunes ‘.
Though her first album falls to the Soul genre of music, Adele’s second album ‘21’ that was a follow-up of the first is an amalgamation of the American Country and Southern Blues style. ‘21’ was released in the year 2011 and over 350,000 copies of it were sold out in the very first week. This elevated Adele to the top of the lists. She bagged six prestigious Grammys the very same year making her a sensation among music enthusiasts all across the globe. 2015 witnessed the release of Adele’s third studio album ‘25’ that yet again broke records by selling out a whopping 800,000 copies in the first week of its release. The lead single “Hello” from the album ‘25’ was released on YouTube prior to the album release and within a span of 88 days, it was viewed one billion times making it the fastest video to hit the one billion mark. ‘25’ won Adele copious awards including 5 Grammys and 4 Brit Awards.
Adele commenced ‘Adele Live 2016’ concert tour from Belfast in Northern Ireland on the 29th of February in 2016. After covering Western Europe, Northern America, and Oceania, the tour concluded prior to its announced date due to vocal injuries that Adele suffered. Adele owes her net worth solely to music as she doesn’t endorse or advocate any brand or product. She has an ideology that getting into entrepreneurship and business would erode her musical and artistic probity.
2017 Grammy Awards was convened with Adele’s performance of her hit song “Hello”. According to The Richest, as of May 2017, Adele has a net worth of $135 million.
