Adam Levine is one of the biggest pop stars in the world. He rose to fame as the lead vocalist of the three time Grammy Award-winning pop rock band, Maroon 5. He just recently received a star on the Hollywood walk of fame for his contribution to the music industry as a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and record producer. In addition to performing with his band, Levine is also well known for appearing as a coach on NBC’s reality talent show The Voice. The “Don’t Wanna Know” singer has a birthday coming up, so here’s a look at 10 things you probably didn’t know about him!
Adam Noah Levine was born on March 18, 1979 in Los Angeles, California to his parents, Patsy, an admissions counselor, and Frederic Levine, founder of the retail chain M. Fredric. His parents divorced when he was 7. Levine used to spend weekdays with his mother and weekends with his father. He grew up with two siblings, a brother named Michael and a sister, Julia, as well as a half-brother and sister, Sam and Liza.
9. Jewish Ancestry
Levine has Jewish ancestry on both sides of his family. His father and maternal grandfather were both Jewish, and although he used to consider himself Jewish, he more recently said that he rejects the idea of following one religion and chooses a “more generalized, spiritual way of life.” As a kid, he chose not to have a Bar Mitzvah.
