Sade (pronounced "shah-day") is a Grammy-winning, world-famous group, who has achieved success in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. Their music features elements of jazz, funk, soul and rnb. Sade was formed in 1982, when members of a Latino-soul band Pride — Sade Adu, (real name Helen Folasade Adu - born 16 January 1959 in Ibadan, Nigeria) Stuart Matthewman and Paul Spencer Denman — together with Paul Cook formed a splinter group and began to write their own material. Later, in 1983, Andrew Hale joined Sade. In 1984 Paul Cook left the band.
