More about yourself
While most teens his age are preparing for college entrance exams and doing high school homework, young Adero juggles the same assignments together with a hectic schedule packed with photo shoots, piano practice, guitar lesions, dance rehearsals, in-studio recording, commercials, movie auditions, and live performances.
The words, prodigious and multi-talented are synonymous and holds true for the quick description of the Chicago native performer, Adero hit Chicago's WGCI and Power 92 radio at the tender age of 13 with his first single called "Let's Go", which he recorded with the late MC Breed, followed by "Mr. President" at 14 years old and "Animated" at 15 years old. To date, Adero is the youngest solo R&B artist to hit Chicago radio rotation in over 30 years. Indeed, this budding new artist has an impressive resume for his age. His name, "Adero" properly fitting; means “Give Life” --and he is ready to take the world by storm! With each live performance, Adero infuses his seemingly infinite energy. Nowhere is his exuberant outlook expressed better than when he sings and writes. He might be just a teen, but his musical ability shows experience, passion and wisdom coming from a place far beyond the date on his birth certificate. Referred to as “boy wonder” by Chicago’s media press at an early age; you may notice this is not your ordinary newcomer. For one thing, this fresh-faced R&B singer just made 17 years old on September 17th.
In September 2010, Adero's new performance music video "KnightCrawler" was selected by mFlix, an On-Demand mobile (telephone) channel on Sprint/Nextel, and is now available on mFlix video playlist, which airs 24/7 On Demand. Adero's music can also be heard at all Six Flags Theme Parks in the United States, Canada and Mexico as of August 2010.
This budding artist has been opening major concerts since he was a kid, systematically drawing music lovers of all ages to take immediate recognition to why he is called the boy wonder. At 12 years old, Adero was also the opening act for a sold out crowd of 4,500 at the 'New Jack Tour' featuring R&B singers Aaron Hall, Guy, Teddy Riley, Black Street, Tony Toni Tone and After 7. Adero was also the featured opening act for Soulja Boy at 14 years old and Trey Songz at 15 years old as well as many other major artists. In 2009, Adero was a spotlight artist in BET's Blaze the Stage at Symphony Hall in New York.
Not only is Adero a threat on the microphone but he is also a bona fide actor. He was the teen star in the popular play, “Work It Out” as “Little Tony”, the son of movie star, Malik Yoba. Adero was also featured as “Travis Younger” in the hit Broadway Musical adaptation of “Raisin.” This multi-talented young star has yet to show signs of slowing down. He can been seen in national Sears and Master Lock commercials; and appeared in the short film called “Hollywood Jerome” by Malik Yusef.
With hundreds of teens in his hometown who line up at all his shows and parties these days, Adero is making a name for himself. His latest upcoming album project, “KnightCrawler” is a macrocosm of R&B and pop songs and deliciously enriched with sticky hooks and campy lyrical play.
