Adele High School:
|The BRIT School for Performing Arts & Technology|
Adele's life story definitely has a musical and free spirited vibe to it. Her mom was the "artsy" type, and had her at the young age of 18. Adele's father left the family when she was only 4, and she kept in contact with him until her teen years. At that point, his alcoholism got to bad for them to maintain a relationship. Adele's mom realized that she wasn't much of the "regular classroom" type and enrolled her at Performing Arts & Technology, which counts Amy Winehouse as an alum. While at school, Adele a a three-track demo for a class project. Record producers contacted the her and, in November 2006, just four months after Adele had graduated school, signed her to a record deal.
