SADE..,The Nigerian Born Sensation!

It was last night when i was watching her live concert that she did in 2011 in Burbank. I was amazed at how beautiful she looks and how great she sang. At the age of 52, she looked so amazing and so gracious and very grounded and i though to myself, wow! there is a pure born African woman, whose music has inspired a lot and still inspiring a lot of people.., and i decided to share a bit about her with you. Sade turned 55 early this year and she is still looking as Hot as she did in the 80s and 90s. Age doesnt know her at all, she is m favourite female artist of all time, am sure you agree with me

Helen Folasade Adu commonly known as SADE, was born on 16 January 1959 in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria. Her middle name Folasade means "honour confers your crown". Her father, Adebisi Adu, a Nigerian lecturer in economics and her mother Anne Hayes, an English nurse, met in London and got married in 1955. They moved back to Nigeria and when her parents marriage was on the rock, her mother moved back to England taking Sade who was four at the time and her older brother Banji to live with her parents. She lived with her grandparents till she was 11 when she moved to Holland-on-Sea, Essex to live wither mother.
SADE, Still looking HOT at age 55!
When she was 18, she moved to London and studied at Saint Martin's School of Art. In collage, she joined a soul band, Pride in which she sang backing vocals. I would say that her breakthrough came with Her solo performance of the song "Smooth Operator" which attracted the attention of record companies and in 1983, she signed a solo deal with Epic Records taking three members of the band, Stuart Matthewman, Andrew Hale and Paul Denman with her.

SADE (the Band), was formed in 1984 and the band was named after her. Sade and her band produced the first of a string of hit albums and their debut album "Diamond Life" appeared in 1984. This album was such a success in the UK, reaching No.2 in the UK Album Chart and selling over 1.2 million copies in the UK alone and won the Brit Award for Best British Album in 1985. The album was a hit internationally reaching number one in several countries and the top ten in the US. The band had several hit albums after that including Promise. The band became so big and went on to win a Grammy Award for the Best New Artist in 1986. And in 2002, the album Lovers Rock, won the Grammy Award for the Best Pop Vocal Album. SADE released another album in 2010 and in 2011, the band won their 4th Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. The band has sold more than 50million unites to date worldwide and they were ranked at No.50 on VH1's list of the "100 greatest artists of all time".
Sade Adu is the most successful solo female artist in British History. In 2002, she received an OBE from Prince Charles at the Buckingham Palace for services to music and she dedicated her award to all the black women in England. She was also listed at number 30 on VH1's 100 Greatest Women in Music. She lives in the English countryside. oh, Bless her VOICE and BEAUTY!
