Since the runaway success of her 1990 debut album Circle of One, which went Platinum, and her impassioned hit single “Get Here” - the Brenda Russell composition that became a Top 5 Billboard 100 hit and the unofficial anthem of the 1991 Gulf War - garnered worldwide acclaim, Oleta Adams has inspired a growing legion of fans in the U.S. and Europe with songs that draw deeply from her roots in gospel, soul, R&B, urban and popular music. Her success, nurtured by national and international tours with Tears for Fears, Phil Collins, Michael Bolton and Luther Vandross, has been solidified by four Grammy nominations and a seemingly bottomless well of creative energy. With eight CD releases, including secular, gospel and a Christmas album, and over 2.5 million albums sold, this gifted songwriter and pianist continues to touch people around the world with her musical odyssey.
