Canadian Bryan Adams rose to popularity in 1983 with the release of his third album, "Cuts Like a Knife". The album made him popular throughout the United States. However, it was his fourth album "Reckless", which is referred to as one of the best albums of the 1980s that made him an international superstar and gave him his first Grammy nomination. It also sold four million copies at the time. In 1987, he released "Into the Fire", a more social conscious album. The album yielded a top ten hit "Heat of the Night", another Grammy nomination and another platinum album to his name. However, in 1991, he released the album "Waking Up the Neighbours" which included the single "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You". The song sold more than three million copies in the United States, becoming the second best selling single, second only to "We Are The World". It was also Adams's first Academy-Award nomination and Golden Globe nomination as the song was written for the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991). "Waking Up the Neighbours" sold four million albums in the United States and garnered him six Grammy nominations (a record for a Canadian). He won one for best song written specifically for a motion picture or television ("(Everything I Do) I Do It For You"). In 1993, he released a greatest hits album, titled "So Far So Good", which spawned a #1 hit, "Please Forgive Me". In 1995, Adams released the single "Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?" from the movie Don Juan DeMarco (1994), which became his fourth #1 hit and his second Academy-Award nomination. He is one of two non-American singers to have four number one hits and the most successful Canadian singer ever. In 1996, he released the album "18 Til I Die", which has garnered him another two Grammy nominations. Later that year, he sang and wrote the single, "I Finally Found Someone", a duet with Barbra Streisand for her movie, The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996), later that year. "I Finally Found Someone" became a top ten hit and won Adams his third Academy-Award nomination. He has released three more albums since then, "MTV Unplugged" in 1997, "On a Day Like Today" in 1998 and most recently all of the songs for the Dreamworks animated film Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron (2002) in which Adams got his second Golden Globe nomination for "Best song". He is currently touring the world.
