TIMELINE

  • SealSeal was born Seal Henry Samuel in England on February 19, 1963 to Nigerian and Brazilian parents. Before beginning a singing career, Seal studied architecture and worked in electrical engineering. Although he had won Grammys and had success in the US, and internationally, questions about his facial scares still persist. The scars were caused by a disease called lupus which Seal suffered from when he was a child. The particular strain of lupus Seal deals with causes blistering especially around the facial area, which when ruptured cause deep scarring. When questioned about his scares, Seal had often eluded to mystical or spiritual causes. In the late 80's, Seal began singing with various bands and on his own - eventually meeting producer, Adamski.

1990....

  • Seal - "Killer" (Single)May 12: Seal and Adamski collaborated on the track "Killer" which shot to #1 in the UK for 1 week.
  • Seal - 'Seal'June: The success of "Killer" lead to a record contract for Seal.
  • June 11: Seal's debut LP, Seal, was released and gave him his first Top 10 hit, "Crazy." The dance track "Killer" was also released in the U.S. and made some waves on the dance scene.

1992....

  • May 31: Seal's second LP was also entitled, Seal, and was released (he stated "(because he) could not think of a better title at the time"). The LP was later referred to as Seal II.

1997....

Seal - "Amazing" (Single) Seal - "The Right Life" (Single) Seal - "A Change Is Gonna Come" (Single)

1998....

  • November 14: Seal hit the ARC Weekly Top 40 with "Human Beings."
  • November 17: A new LP by Seal called Human Being hit stores. Trevor Horn (the producer of Seal's first 2 LPs) was an influence on the LP once again after the 2 worked out their differences for the new LP.
  • Seal - 'Human Being'Seal told CNN about Human Being: "The album is more like a celebration of human beings and all the wonderful things we human beings do when we're living in our natural state, which I believe to be love. (The first single "Human Beings") ...was initially inspired by the death of and the loss of the 2 rappers, Notorious B.I.G. and (particularly) 2Pac. I think there was a situation where there was a perfect example of a lack of love of the self. So it was initially inspired by those 2." At the end of November, Seal talked with MTV more about his working relationship with producer, Trevor Horn: "Well, we fell out to put it bluntly... but then I think that's the thing about any working relationship or creative working relationship, if they tend to be successful, they also tend to be tempestuous. I think that's largely because you have two creative minds, personalities, working together and it's not as if Trevor is just a producer. He's also an artist. The fact that he produces records, you know, it's coincidental. But he is a bass player by trade, and also he's a singer and he has fronted a band before, a couple of bands actually. So you really, if you put the two of us together in a room, yes we have, I hope, great creative moments, but there can also be tempestuous times. Particularly when you are striving for something new and you don't want to repeat yourself. I guess it would be similar to that of a band situation, so we fell out, and we kissed and made up and we finished the record. That's basically what happened."

1999....

2000...

2002....

2003....

  • Seal - 'Seal IV'September 9: Seal released Seal IV, with the first single "Waiting For You." The LP evolved after 2 years of working on a new LP and scrapping work meant to be titled Togetherland after Seal felt wasn't good enough, telling VH1: "There is an emotional quality in my music that resonates with people. If there’s no emotion or belief in the song or the delivery, then there is nothing. It was not the easiest reality to come to terms with, but it was one that I had to accept."
  • September 27: Seal topped the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart for 2 weeks with "Get It Together."

2004....

2005....

  • May 10: Seal married supermodel Heidi Klum. The couple divorced in 2014.
