Seal in Istanbul

Seal is in Istanbul to perform onstage at Istanbul’s Cemil Topuzlu Open Air Theater on July 19.

One of the most powerful voices of soul and modern R&B, Seal is known for his renditions of popular hits such as “Killer”, “Crazy” and Grammy-awarded “Kiss from A Rose”. Born in 1963 in London, Seal was educated as an architect and modelled for a while. His silky voice and his unique singing style quickly brought him international fame in the 1990s, and he became one of the most popular British soul vocalists of the decade. Produced by David Foster, Soul, his sixth studio album, features interpretations of soul and jazz standards.

The artist is expected to give a silky smooth concert to his Turkish fans with his band, which consists of Steve Sidelnyk on drums, Mark Summerlin on guitars and backing vocals, Marcus Brown on bass, keys and backing vocals, Gus Isidore on guitar, Carol Jarvis on trombone and backing vocals, Sarah Field on baritone saxophone, trumpet, backing vocals, Georgina Bromilow on trumpet and backing vocals and Katie Samways on saxophone and backing vocals.

Seal is also well-konown for his personal life, as he is married to one of the most popular Victoria’s Secret angels, Heidi Klum.

On June 11, 2009, Seal, on tour with “Soul,” said, “It is nice to be in newspapers and magazines for something other than my marriage.”

He said his marriage may take away the attention, but doesn’t detract from what he loves doing: making music.

On Oct. 5, 2009, nearly five years after the couple married, Klum filed a petition to change her name to Heidi Samuel.
