Adam Mitchel Lambert (born January 29, 1982) is an American singer,
songwriter and stage actor born in Indianapolis but raised in San
Diego. He began performing in amateur theatrical productions in
childhood, a path he pursued into adulthood, appearing in
professional productions in the U.S. and abroad. Lambert became
prominent after appearing on the eighth season of American Idol.
Although he was runner-up, Lambert launched a music career with the
release of the studio album For Your Entertainment (November 2009)
after signing with 19 in a joint venture with RCA. The album
debuted at number three on the Billboard 200, sold 198,000 copies
in the U.S. in its first week, and reached the top 10 in several
countries worldwide. Its singles "For Your Entertainment," "Whataya
Want from Me" and "If I Had You" also became international
successes. Soon after the album release, he headlined a worldwide
concert tour, Glam Nation, the first American Idol contestant to do
so in the year following his Idol season. The tour was followed by
two live releases: an extended play entitled Acoustic Live (2010),
and a live CD/DVD Glam Nation Live (2011), which debuted at number
one on the SoundScan Music Video chart. Lambert took executive
producer credit and was a principal writer on his second studio
album, Trespassing, released in May 2012, to critical acclaim.
Trespassing made its debut in the number one spot on the Billboard
200 album chart, also topping the Billboard Digital Albums Chart
and Canada's Digital Albums Chart. Lambert made music history as
the first openly gay artist to achieve this top charting position.
