Biography

Paddington, London (1989 – present)

Seal Henry Olusegun Olumide Adeola Samuel (born February 19, 1963 in Paddington, London) is a Grammy award winning English singer-songwriter of Nigerian and Brazilian descent, professionally known only by his first name, Seal. A childhood battle with discoid lupus left him with distinctive facial scarring and hair loss. He released his debut studio album Seal in 1991 and has since released 1994’s Seal II, 1998’s Human Being, 2003’s Seal IV, 2007’s System and 2010’s Commitment. He has also released four live albums and three greatest hits collection albums. He is married to German supermodel Heidi Klum and they have three children together.

Music career

After a short time singing in local clubs and bars, in the 1980s, he joined Push, a British funk band, and toured with them in Japan. In Asia, he joined a blues band in Thailand for a while before separating from the group and journeying throughout India on his own. Seal returned to England, sleeping on the couch of friend Julian Bunster, then a model. He sometimes asked him “Do I sing well?”; to which he often met the response that he sang better than most current artists. His break came when he met the producer Adamski. He was given the lyrics of the song “Killer”, which was a huge hit in 1990.

Seal (1991)

As the vocalist on the Adamski single “Killer”, Seal became a hot property when the single reached number one in 1990 in the UK. Like many other Adamski tracks, the single was also a hit in night clubs.
