Seventeen years ago, before he became an internationally acclaimed, three-time Grammy-winning pop vocalist and songwriter who has sold more than 15 million albums worldwide, Seal was a hot property on Britain's house music/rave scene. He hooked up with legendary producer Trevor Horn and scored two hits, 1990's "Killer" (with techno artist Adamski) and 1991's U.S. Top Ten single "Crazy," from his eponymous debut album; a genre-defying fusion of soul, pop, rock, R&B, and propulsive grooves that announced the arrival of an innovative new talent.
Seal gained international attention with his second album, the aptly named Seal II. One of the singles of the album, "Kiss from a Rose" was featured in the soundtrack of Joel Schumacher's 1995 movie Batman Forever, which has been considered to be the catalyst for Seal's skyrocket to international fame. Seal's albums have ranked on the charts for numerous countries, including the UK, US, France, New Zealand, Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Australia, Austria, and Canada.
For his musical endeavors, Seal has been awarded four Grammys, three Brit awards, and an MTV music award. He continues to write, record, and perform his music for his countless fans around the world.
