Bryan Adams

Bryan Adams has enjoyed success in a music career spanning more than 25 years and encompassing chart-topping records, sold-out concerts, and Oscar-nominated songs. He has earned three Academy Award nominations and three Golden Globe nominations for Best Song, the first in 1992 for (Everything I Do) I Do It for You, from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. In 1996, he received his second Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman, from Don Juan DeMarco, and the following year, he garnered nominations for I've Finally Found Someone, his duet with Barbra Streisand, from The Mirror Has Two Faces.

In addition, (Everything I Do) I Do It for You brought Adams a Grammy Award and an MTV Award for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, and also holds the record for the longest running #1 single in British music history. The single was also one of Adams' chart-topping soundtrack hits in the United States, along with Heaven, All For Love (with Rod Stewart and Sting), and Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman. Adams' many other honors include four ASCAP Awards, an American Music Award, and 17 Canadian Juno Awards. In his native Canada, he was awarded the Officer of the Order of Canada and, in 1990, was named that country's Artist of the Decade.

In all, Adams' worldwide album sales have exceeded 60 million copies, and have spawned such hits as Summer of '69, Run to You, Straight From the Heart and Cuts Like a Knife. He has also lent his talents to a number of philanthropic endeavors, including The Prince's Trust, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, the establishment of whale sanctuaries, and finding a cure for breast cancer. Apart from his music, Adams put together two books of black and white photographs of notable Canadian and British women, all the proceeds of which went to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and the Haven Trust (a breast cancer hospice program in the UK).
