Who is Adam Lambert?

American singer-songwriter Adam Lambert originally gained notoriety as a contestant on American Idol’s eighth season in 2009. He was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, on January 29, 1982, and raised in San Diego, California.

Young Lambert developed a love of music, and in high school, he started playing in bands and local theatrical shows. He relocated to Los Angeles after graduation to pursue a career in music. Lambert’s music career was sparked by his win on American Idol, and his debut album, “For Your Entertainment,” was made available in 2009.

Early Life

In Indianapolis, Indiana, on January 29, 1982, Adam Mitchel Lambert was born. Adam’s father, Eber, was a program manager at Novatel Wireless while his mother, Leila, worked as a dental hygienist throughout Adam’s formative years. However, Leila eventually changed her profession to interior design. After the family relocated to San Diego, California, Lambert’s younger brother, Neil, was born. Adam’s mother is Jewish, and as a youngster, he attended Hebrew school.

Lambert started acting in plays with the Metropolitan Educational Theatre network when she was 9 years old. She later made appearances in professional productions of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” “Peter Pan,” “Hello, Dolly,” and “Grease.”

Adam participated in the school’s jazz band, the chorus, and the plays as a student at Mount Carmel High School. After graduation, he relocated to Orange County to enroll in California State University, Fullerton, but dropped school after just five weeks so that he could concentrate on his job. He then went to Los Angeles.

Early Career and American Idol

At the age of 19, Lambert’s first professional position was a 10-month tenure as a performer on a cruise ship. Two years later, he was hired for a European tour of “Hair.” In a 2004 Kodak Theatre production of “The Ten Commandments: The Musical” starring Val Kilmer, Adam played Joshua.

Adam was chosen to be an ensemble member and Fiyero’s backup in a touring production of “Wicked” in 2005. He returned to these roles in a 2007 performance in Los Angeles.

The judges frequently praised Lambert throughout his participation on the eighth season of “American Idol” in 2009, and Simon Cowell even gave him a standing ovation for his rendition of “Mad World.” Adam has remained one of the most well-liked “American Idol” finalists despite finishing second behind Kris Allen. MTV named him fifth on their list of “The 10 Greatest “American Idol” Contestants of All Time” in 2009.

Following his stint on “American Idol,” Lambert released his debut album, “For Your Entertainment,” in November 2009. The album featured the international hits “Whataya Want from Me” and “If I Had You.”

He was nominated for a Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for the album, which has also received platinum and gold certifications in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The following studio albums by Adam have been released: “Trespassing” (2012), “The Original High” (2015), and “Velvet” (2020). Worldwide, he has sold more than 3 million albums and 5 million singles.

Starting Queen Career

Adam was chosen to be the band’s main singer at the MTV Europe Music Awards in 2011 after sharing the stage with members of Queen on “American Idol.” After performing at their first official performance in June 2012, Queen and Adam Lambert went on to release the album “Live in Japan” in 2016 and start a series of international tours.

Both fans and reviewers have lauded Lambert’s tenure as Queen’s main vocalist. The band’s timeless hits have been given fresh life by his strong vocal range and upbeat stage presence; he has managed to make the songs his own while still paying homage to the original recordings.

The other members of Queen have also expressed their gratitude for Lambert, with Brian May calling him a “gift from god” and Roger Taylor claiming that he is “the closest thing to Freddie Mercury that you’re ever going to get.”

Although Freddie Mercury comparisons are unavoidable, Lambert has managed to distinguish himself as a distinctive and gifted performer in his own right. Even the most cynical Queen fans have been won over by his rendition of the songs, despite the fact that he may not be able to perfectly imitate Mercury’s renowned voice. Overall, Lambert’s tenure as Queen’s lead singer has been a resounding success and has contributed to preserving the band’s legacy.


The Trevor Project, MusiCares, Charity: water, and DonorsChoose are just a few of the charities that Lambert has backed. He received a Unity Award in 2013 from the We Are Family Foundation in recognition of his uplifting songs. Adam established the Feel Something Foundation in 2019 to support LGBTQ+ human rights.

He has performed in a number of charity performances, including one in 2012 with Queen and Elton John to support the Olena Pinchuk ANTIAIDS Foundation, another in 2012 for Marylanders for Marriage Equality, and another in 2013 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation Ball. Lambert also contributed to the charitable song “Hands,” which was released in support of the Pulse nightclub shooting victims’ families in 2016.

Real Estate

In the Hollywood Hills, Lambert purchased a 3,800-square-foot property in 2014 for $3 million. He initially advertised it for $4 million in 2017, reduced the price to $3.35 million in May 2019, took it off the market in January 2020, and then listed it once more the following month for $3.35 million with a different realtor.

Adam spent $6.5 million on a 5,000-square-foot, 14-room house in the Hollywood Hills in 2018.

Awards and Honors

In 2009, Lambert won the Young Hollywood Award for Artist of the Year and the Teen Choice Award for Male Reality/Variety Star.

His performance of “Whataya Want from Me” at the 2010 MuchMusic Video Awards in Canada earned him the UR Fav International Video award. He was given the Davidson/Valentini Award and the GLAAD Award for Outstanding Music Artist in 2013 at the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards.
