Adeva (born Patricia Daniels in 1960) is a female African American house music and R&B artist from Paterson, New Jersey, United States, and the youngest of six children. Her style ranges between diva vamp and gospel ballad, and earned her a couple of well-deserved top 20 hits in 1989. Her solo releases never topped the charts but her performances on an album by dance heavyweight Frankie Knuckles were received with acclaim. Adeva was always huge in the dance clubs in both the UK and USA. In 1996 EMI Gold released the compilation "Ultimate Adeva" to showcase her work hitherto.
