Amerikaanse soulzangeres, pianist, geboren op 4 mei 1962 in Seattle, Washington, als jongste dochter van een dominee. Doet haar eerste muzikale ervaring op in het kerkkoor van haar vader. Groeit op in Yakima, Washington.



Eind jaren tachtig wordt Oleta Adams ontdekt door Roland Orzabal en Curt Smith van de Britse popband Tears for Fears wanneer ze een concert geeft in de Hyatt Regency Lounge in Kansas City, Missouri.



Adams speelt een belangrijke rol op hun album The Seeds of Love. Ze doet de vrouwelijke vocalen van Woman in Chains [Fontana 876 248-7] in 1989.



Op de albumtrack Badman’s Song neemt ze de piano en zang voor haar rekening, maar ook op de Standing on the Corner of the Third World neemt Oleta plaats achter de piano en gaat mee op The Seeds of Love wereldtournee in 1990.

Songtekst

I know you thought it best
That we spend a little time apart
But one night without you
Was too much for my heart
I know I promised not to call
Sorry but I didn't have a choice
I just had to hear your voice

I had to know that you're okay
I couldn't get to sleep this way

Please don't be mad at me
'Cause I really did the best I could
Not to dial your number but it didn't do much good
Hung up the phone so many times
'Til I didn't have a choice
I just had to hear your voice

I had to know that you're okay
I couldn't get to sleep this way
And I had to hear you say hello
Had to hear you, because I love you so

I know you thought it best
That we spend a little time apart
But I had to hear your voice
Though I know it wasn't right
I just had to hear your voice
Goodnight
