Book Seal for a Private Performance
The son of Nigerian and Brazilian parents, Seal, born Sealhenry Samuel in 1963, was raised in England. After graduating with an architectural degree, he took various jobs around London, including electrical engineering. After a while, he began singing in local clubs and bars and then began touring Asia.
Upon returning to England, Seal met Adamski, a house and techno producer and provided the lyrics and vocals for Adamski’s ‘Killer’, which became a number one U.K. hit in 1990. Seal signed a solo recording contract with ZTT and recorded his eponymous debut album Seal. The first single pulled from the album, “Crazy,” became a hit in the U.K. in 1990 and reached number seven in the U.S. upon its release there the following year. Seal was likewise a success, reaching number 24 in America and selling over three-million copies around the world.
In 1994 he released his second album also titled Seal. It really took off in 1995 when ‘Kiss from a Rose’ was featured on the soundtrack to Batman Forever. That song became number one in America and spent a total of 12 weeks at the top of the charts. Its success made the album multi-platinum and it sold over four million copies in the U.S. alone. Additionally, the song received three Grammy awards: Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.
Following the release of Seal IV, the album put the singer back in the Top Ten of the U.K. and U.S. charts. Additionally, Seal married Heidi Klum, who appeared as a duet partner on ‘Wedding Day’, a song on the 2007 album System. For the next several years, Seal was more productive than ever. He switched gears with Soul, for which he covered classic soul songs and then emerged with his tenth album, Standards.
