SADE ADU is a Nigerian-born English singer-songwriter, composer, arranger, and record producer. With members Paul S. Denman, Andrew Hale, and Stuart Matthewman, she gained worldwide fame as the lead vocalist of the English band SADE. Following a brief stint as a fashion designer of men's clothing and part-time model, SADE ADU began backup singing for the band ‘Pride’. Growing attention from record labels led her, along with other fellow band members, to separate from ‘Pride’ and form the band SADE. Following a record deal with Epic Records the band released their debut album “Diamond Life” (1984). The album sold over six million copies, becoming one of the top-selling debut recordings of the 1980s, and the best-selling debut ever by a British female vocalist.
Following the release of the band's debut album they went on to release a string of multi-platinum selling albums. Their follow-up “Promise” was released in 1985 and peaked at number-one in the UK Albums Chart, the US Billboard 200, and went on to sell four million copies in the US.
SADE would later go on to make her acting debut in the British film “Absolute Beginners” (1986), before the release of the band's albums “Stronger Than Pride” (1988) and “Love Deluxe” (1992).
After the release of the fifth album “Lovers Rock” (2000) the band embarked on a ten-year hiatus in which SADE ADU raised her daughter.
Following the hiatus the band returned with their sixth album “Soldier of Love” (2010) which became a commercial success and won a Grammy Award.
