Popular English singer and songwriter, Adele, celebrates her birthday today, May 5th.
The Grammy Award winning singer turns 34, just a couple of months after releasing her latest studio album “30.”
Adele, full name, Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, is a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE), an honour conferred on her on the 19th of December, 2013, at the Buckingham Palace.
After high school graduation in 2006, Adele signed on to XL Recordings in November of that same year.
She released her maiden album, 19, afterwards which shot her to global stardom, with the album hitting peak level as number one album on iTunes.
It was not always smooth sailing for the singer as she grew up in poor neighbourhoods in Southern London.
Fast-forward to present day and the artiste has shed weight, dropped multiple albums, won multiple awards, sold over 120million records and has a net worth of $225million!
