SORT BY Relevancy
The amazing Oleta Adams was born the daughter of a preacher and was raised listening to gospel music.
Before gaining her opportunity to perform, Adams faced a great deal of rejection. In the 1970s, she moved to Los Angeles, California where she recorded a demo tape. However, many music executives were exclusively interested in disco music rather than Adams' preferred style. With the advice of her singing coach, Lee Farrell, Adams moved to Kansas City where she did a variety of local gigs.
In 1985, Adams was discovered by Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, founders of the English band ‘Tears for Fears’, while she was performing in a hotel bar in Kansas City, Missouri whilst they were on a US tour. Two years later, they contacted her to invite her to join their band as a singer and pianist on their next album, The Seeds of Love. In 1989, the album was released and the single "Woman in Chains"—sung as a duet by Adams and Orzabal and with Phil Collins on drums—became her first hit. Adams embarked on a world tour with Tears For Fears in 1990.
Next came her new album, Circle of One. The album received much critical acclaim and peaked at no.4 in the UK in 1991 when she scored her biggest hit to date with her Grammy nominated cover of Brenda Russell's "Get Here".
