May 12, 2008

Adams is also an acclaimed photographer whose work is currently on display as the official lensman for Hear the World (, a global initiative that raises awareness about the importance of good hearing and the impact of hearing loss.  The exhibit opened in New York on May 1, then will travel to Berlin and Zurich in June. 

One of Adams’ most viewed photographs is a recent portrait of Senator Hillary Clinton, which is currently being used as a campaign poster (see attachment). "I'm flattered that Senator Clinton would use one of my images for such an important time in American politics,” says Adams. “As a Canadian and an impartial observer, I'd be pleased to take Senator Obama's portrait."

“11” arrives nearly three decades after Adams’ self-titled 1980 debut and four years after his last studio release, 2004’s Room Service. In between those two discs, the Canadian-born, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter has sold more than 65 million albums worldwide, garnered 21 top ten hits, earned nominations for three Academy Awards and five Golden Globes, received 18 Juno Awards, an American Music Award and five ASCAP Film and Television Music Awards for Most Performed Song from a Motion Picture (his music has appeared on more than 40 movie soundtracks).

Adams has been awarded the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia; he has received an award for "Artist of the Decade" and was recently inducted into the Juno Hall of Fame.  He also has a star on Canada's Walkway of Fame and recently added his handprint to the Wembley Square of Fame in celebration of his 25th show at the famed stadium.

Bryan Adams' live performances have benefited His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales Prince's Trust, Live Aid,  Live 8, The Concert for Freedom for Nelson Mandela, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, Net Aid, The Canadian Avalanche Foundation and Breast Cancer,  as well as campaigns that have saved the rainforests, provided food and comfort for the needy and created whale sanctuaries. Through his own foundation he has also helped build schools in areas of Southeast Asia, devastated by the tsunami in 2004.

Bryan's outstanding live concerts have established him as one of the world's best rock singers of our time, performing over 120 concerts a year as he works to spread his message of music and environmental awareness to an audience of millions around the globe.
