Seal of approval

British soul singer and songwriter, Seal, will be taking part in the Cascais Cool Jazz festival, also featuring Katie Melua, with a concert at the Hipódromo de Cascais on July 31.

Seal has been on the music scene since his collaboration with Adamski in 1990 and the huge hit Killer, and since then has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide.

His popularity was boosted by his song Kiss from a Rose featured in the Batman Forever film, which later won a Grammy Award for Record of the Year and Song of the Year in 1996.

Fans can expect a mixture of old hits and new material from his latest album Soul, which was released at the end of 2008.
