"The music industry is really funny. When you have a hit record, everyone knows who are you, everyone wants to do duets with you. And then, if you have a miss, people suffer from amnesia."

Henry Olusegun Adeola Samuel (born 19 February 1963), better known as Seal, is a British pop and R&B singer who is best-known (at least in the United States) for his hits "Crazy" and "Kiss from a Rose". He was born in London to an Afro-Brazilian father and Nigerian mother. Seal has won numerous music awards throughout his career, including four Grammy Awards and an MTV Video Music Award.

One of the other things Seal is known for besides his music are the rather impressive scars on his face. Over the years, rumors about those scars have ranged from them being African tribal scars to the result of a gunshot wound to being the result of a failed suicide attempt. The truth is actually pretty mundane: they are the result of a childhood illness known as discoid lupus erythematosus, a condition that affects the skin of the head and neck.

He married German supermodel Heidi Klum in 2004, but by 2012 the couple had legally separated. Their divorce wasn't finalized until 2014.

In addition to recording albums and touring, Seal was one of the four coaches on The Voice Australia during its first and second seasons, and won both of those seasons (guiding both the 2012 champion, Karise Eden, and the 2013 champion, Harrison Craig, to victory).

Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a trope on the gray:


Kiss from a Rose
