The rise to fame of a certain Adele Laurie Blue Adkins – Rolling Stone

Her name is Adele Laurie Blue Adkins and she was born on May 5, 1988; she ‘woke up’ overnight a singer after a friend of hers uploaded a track onto MySpace in 2006, an example of several demo songs from Adele’s impressive voice.

Within two years she had won two awards: one in 2007 at the Brit Awards and BBC Sound of 2008. Her debut album was released in 2008 and went four times platinum, and the second album was released in 2011 and received in the UK and USA. Adele is the first artist who has sold more than 3 million albums in the UK.

The singer was born in Tottenham and began singing at the age of 4. She said the Spice Girls band made a mark on her life and she turned it into music. The time when Adele made her move and truly believed in becoming a star was when she saw Pink playing at Brixton Academy. Two months after graduating from high school, Adele released two songs; and three other songs were recorded for a project and she gave them to a friend who took courage and posted them on MySpace. That was the moment when Virgin Records asked about her. Adele canceled some tournaments to be with her ex-boyfriend. “I got so drunk by the time I went on at 2 a.m. I had forgotten the words to my own songs … It was the worst thing ever”. Madness and frustration of this relationship made her to release the album “21” and Rolling in the Deep lyrics are more than suggestive.

In June, Adele announced her pregnancy on her official site. Adele’s next album will be different from the previous album. Adele will not sing about failed romantic relationships, but about pregnancy.
