British singer Seal (1963) began his career in dance circles when he recorded the vocals for the Adamski single Killer in 1990. The following year he released his debut album Seal, a mix of soul, pop, dance and rock produced by Trevor Horn. The album marked his international breakthrough and the single Crazy reached no. 2 on the British charts and went all the way to no. 1 in the Netherlands. Today, Seal has three Grammy Awards to his name and has recorded seven studio albums. Seal took a new direction in 2008 with the CD Soul. The album consists of covers of classic soul songs. Seal's muffled voice turned out to be ideally suited to interpreting the genre and the album was very highly praised. Last year he released his latest album Commitment, inspired, according to the singer, by his marriage to supermodel Heidi Klum. David Foster signed on for the production and the album put Seal higher up in the charts than he had been for some years.
