Singer Seal - signature song: Kiss From a Rose
Seal was born in Nigeria in the continent of Africa on the 19th of February 1963. Seal was adopted when he was little since his parents couldn’t afford to raise him. Seal grew up in Paddington which is a district of Westminster in London and became an architect. Afterwards Seal had numerous jobs around London such as electrical engineering and designing clothes.
Seal started his career singing in numerous bars and local pub. He joined numerous groups such as Push which toured in Japan. In Thailand, Seal got together with a band that played blues which he also left behind to travel by himself to India. He finally returned to Britain where Adamski, who was quite impressed with his voice, made some deals with Seal. Together they worked on the song "Killer" where Seal provided the lyrics as well as vocals. It became quite a hit during the 90s when it was released. Seal soon signed a contract for his solo career with ZTT Records with his first album named Seal which was released in 1991. Seal’s album was widely received both in UK and in the United States. His singles such as "Crazy", "Future Love Paradise", and "Killers" were among his hit songs. "Crazy" made it to the number seven spot in the Billboards and was the number two song in the UK.
The second album which was also named Seal took him three years to complete and was launched in 1994. Among the songs found in the album are "Prayer for the Dying", "Newborn", and "Kiss From a Rose". "Prayer For the Dying" reached the twenty-first spot in the Billboards while the "Kiss From A Rose" reached a modest rank when it was released. It became quite popular when it was used as a soundtrack for the movie Batman and received two Grammy Awards in the year 1996. "Kiss From A Rose" became the signature song of Seal. Seal’s other albums are Human Being, Togetherland, Seal IV, and his upcoming album Soul. The album Human Being shows the troubled times in the singer’s life.
