Adele Biography
Adele Lavine Blue Adkins (b. May 5, 1988 [London, England])
Parents : [father - Mark Evans] and [mother - Penny Adkins] Born in Tottenham, North London in 1988, Adele Laurie Blue Adkins was welcomed into the world by two young parents, Mark Evans and Penny Adkins. A self proclaimed welsh womanizer, Adele’s father left her and her mother with no financial support to move back to Wales and the security of his own parents. Although the family understood Adele’s amazing talent at a young age, her mother could not afford the expensive training available to other young musical hopefuls.

While living in a flat in Brighton, England, Adele joined a neighbor, Shingai Shoniua, the lead singer in the band Noisettes, during her practice sessions. At the age of 14, Adele auditioned to attend a music preparatory school, Brit School in Croyden. At the prestigious school, Adele became classmates with Leona Lewis and Amy Winehouse. Adele advertised her angelic singing voice on Myspace, thus getting noticed and signing with XL Records.

Adele Adkins Family Tree
Adele Mother - Penny Adkins (b. 1970 [London])
Adele credits her success to her mother, Penny. Coming from a rather large family, Penny Adkins left home and was forced to be completely independent of her parents at the age of 18. Perhaps this is why Penny chose to only have one child and always leaves the light on for her daughter to come home to her.

Penny chose to drop out of art school to raise Adele when she became pregnant with her. She never married Adele’s father, Mark Evens. The relationship with Adele’s father did not last long. She was on her own again raising her daughter when Adele was only 2 or 3 year old. She worked many odd jobs from organizing event for adults to furniture making and even a masseuse. When Adele was ten, she finally married and the family moved to a bigger flat in Brighton. At this time, Adele’s mother entered her in music classes for her to learn piano, guitar, and bass. The local café owners remember Adele and her mother enjoying a cup of coffee while Adele crooned with her guitar.

Today, Adele’s mother enjoys the perks of her daughter’s success and is finally working on a career in art selling her colorful floral paintings. Her husband works at a Wickes in London, which is like a Home Depot or Lowes in America. Adele pays tribute to her mother with a tattoo of a penny on her wrist.

His father, John, replaced Mark as a male role model for Adele until he died of Bowl Cancer when Adele was 11.
