Seal emerged from England's house music scene in 1990 to become the most popular British soul vocalist of that decade. Although his earliest material still showed signs of acid house, by the mid-'90s he was known for a distinctive fusion of soul, folk, pop, dance, and rock that brought him success on both sides of the Atlantic. Early on, he enjoyed a very high level of success -- an Ivor Novello Award was given to him for the writing of his first single, and he won three Grammy Awards only a few years later. His albums were typically released a few years apart, yet they tended to earn multiple gold and platinum certifications in different countries.

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 and designing leather clothing. After a while, he began singing in local clubs and bars. He joined an English funk band called Push, touring Japan with the band in the mid-'80s. When he was in Asia, he joined a Thailand-based blues band. After a short time with that group, he traveled throughout India on his own.

Upon returning to England, Seal met Adamski, a house and techno producer who had yet to make much of an impression in the U.K. Seal provided the lyrics and vocals for Adamski's "Killer," which became a number one U.K. hit in 1990 and was acknowledged with an Ivor Novello Award. Seal signed a solo recording contract with ZTT and recorded his eponymous debut album with label founder Trevor Horn, who had previously worked with Yes, ABC, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, and Grace Jones, among others. The first single pulled from the album, "Crazy," became a number 15 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.

Seal subsequently took three years to complete his second album. In between the two records, he appeared on the Jimi Hendrix tribute album Stone Free, singing on Jeff Beck's version of "Manic Depression." In the summer of 1994, he released his second album, also titled Seal. Preceded by the American Top 40 hit "Prayer for the Dying," the album did well upon its release, peaking at number 20 and selling a million copies by the spring of 1995, but it didn't really take off until a year after its release, when "Kiss from a Rose" was featured on the soundtrack to Batman Forever. That song became a number one pop single in America and spent a total of 12 weeks at the top of the adult contemporary chart. Its success sent the parent album into multi-platinum status; two years after its original release, the album had sold over four million copies in the U.S. alone. Additionally, the song was connected to three Grammy awards: Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.

Human Being, Seal's third album, hit the shelves in 1998 and didn't fare nearly as well on a commercial level. Five years passed -- a period that included the recording of Togetherland, a shelved album Seal termed "crap" -- prior to the release of Seal IV. That album put the singer back in the Top Ten of the U.K. album chart and, for the first time, in the U.S. Top Ten. As another lengthy between-album period ensued, there were a couple stopgap packages, namely Best: 1991-2004 and the live CD/DVD combo Live in Paris. 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 (2008), for which he covered classic soul songs. In eight territories, the album was certified gold, platinum, or diamond, while it reached number 13 in the U.S. It was produced by David Foster, who remained a creative partner for Commitment (2010) and Soul 2 (2011), the latter of which -- a second set of covers -- also involved Trevor Horn. The album 7 (2015), issued three years after Seal and Klum's divorce, was previewed with the tracks "Every Time I'm with You" and "Do You Ever." Those two songs, as well as all others on the album, were produced by Horn. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Love this person. Even though he is named after a circus animal. Your songs makes my day and night bless you and that love music. Love his voice. I don't know how the police and sade are related to this person. I know he was popular in the 90s. I love you Seal. Keep up the good work. "Kiss From A Rose" is one of my favorite songs. Some of the songs are a little emotional but I still love you Seal. You sometimes play on Jammin 99.9. That's a radio station I like to listen to almost every day. Tha

Faith never sustains the lost where histories forgotten ways failed to pay it's cost. leaving no room for souls fallen to the last of their belief, that somewhere a better day will rise as bitterness comes like a thief. stilling hope of a new lack luster play ending better than the earlier start of painful breaks filling their part; as emptiness stays when counting every beginning of life never claimed with blame; as to why they choose the same, even before they loose heart to finish the game.

From the first time hearing the single Crazy I knew this artist was special with the pairing of producer Trevor Horn from Yes fame he has released some memorable music with depth and soul..... I can't wait to see him on tour again....

there's no point praying to nothing worth believing as every thing eventually dies it leaves nothing but the crying and no words spoken to air brings hope in times of despair when knowledge gleaned doesn't mend broken dreams and only lies find promise that mislead ways follows a pure idea out of flames to a higher state of mind when there's no place beyond the open sky for imagined souls to climb if they could abandon their wh*r*ing bodies behind after laying with every dog they choose to grind

if they was a time for life to play we'd live in better days to find a way seeing that even in darkness there's a light inside burning to make up for lost moments we couldn't find as the hope we had faded in the good and the bad when you only saw the sad I was still trying to hold the love we had but no giving was left for you to glean while these empty words kept me from cutting our ties clean until you left these heart strings frayed beyond holding anything within our means

as a rose falls across the grave hearts blood flows from quicken blade and fears find wounds washed in tears while the end begins with morning dew casting fog in the valleys clear to bring words taken beyond pride that are never withdrawn before they take ride to lay open tares to anguish felt inside when but a kiss could heal mortal pains but lips wait without their parting for love to gain until such affections make straight the soul lying maimed and grace the broken mind sane

I can never be anything more that I cannot see just to pretend I believe in these broken lines tracing a past apart from me for missing ideas that left me unfreed of ever ones grip that crushes me under belief that lost morals should be seen as facts unquestioned when all that I see is lies feeding endless ties to wasted dreams that stifle my leave of this worlds unjust being
