We prove a new local inequality for divisors on surfaces and utilize it to compute α-invariants of singular del Pezzo surfaces, which implies that del Pezzo surfaces of degree one whose singular points are of type \(\mathbb{A}_{1}\) , \(\mathbb{A}_{2}\) , \(\mathbb{A}_{3}\) , \(\mathbb{A}_{4}\) , \(\mathbb{A}_{5}\) , or \(\mathbb{A}_{6}\) are Kähler-Einstein.
