Adeva - Pop
Adeva (born Patricia Daniels) is an American singer. She had a string of successful house and R&B hits in the late 1980s to early 1990s, including "Warning" (UK #17), "I Thank You" (UK #17) and "Respect" (UK #17).
Born around 1960 in Paterson, New Jersey, Daniels was the youngest of six children. She developed her voice as a member, and later director and vocal coach, of her church choir. She began singing professionally in the mid-1980s, releasing the single "In and Out of My Life" in 1988 on Easy Street Records. Immediately after this, she signed with the UK label Cooltempo (a subsidiary of EMI) later in 1988 and released a house rendition of the Otis Redding hit "Respect" that reached #17 in the UK. Her debut album Adeva! was released in August 1989, and peaked at #6 on the UK Albums Chart,#28 in Germany, and #14 in Australia. The album was certified platinum by the British Phonographic Industry for UK sales exceeding 300,000 copies. In addition to "Respect", the album contained several other hit singles including "Warning!" and "I Thank You", both of which also reached #17 in the UK, and "Musical Freedom" which reached #22. The album was released in the United States in 1990 via EMI's Capitol Records, where "Warning!" had become a Top 10 Dance Chart hit.
