Overview

ADELE Laurie Blue Adkins was born on May 5, 1988 in Tottenham, North London, England, UK. She’s an English singer and songwriter popularly known as ADELE. She was raised alone by her mother. Her mother is a furniture-maker and adult learning activities organizer. ADELE started singing at the early age of four. Since then, singing has been her obsession. In several interviews, ADELE said that her biggest musical influence was the famous Spice Girls.

As a child, she was known to impersonate the Spice Girls while singing at dinner parties. She would sometimes do a little concert in her room for her mother and her mom’s friends. Because of her love of singing, her dad’s best friend, a dance producer, discovered that she had a nice voice. He was instrumental in the invitation she received to record and do a cover for “Heart of Glass.” From the moment she held the microphone, she realized that singing was her calling and that it brought her great happiness.

This is meant to be a short read about Adele’s Life and Rise to Fame and Fortune as an international singer. This is in no way a complete and comprehensive read, but does offer the reader a snapshot to a popular singer and entertainer that has the juice to be a successful singer/songwriter for years to come.

    #1 Fan!!!!!!!/Darn the Guy That Dumped Adele

    Adele you rock! I love her music and I am so happy that she got over her break up! That guy that dumped her sucks! Adele is so hot! so if you out there and your the guy that dumped her darn you! You are missing out on a sweet and loving person. I don't even think he loved her because her got over it and found another woman. That is so wrong on so many levels.

    Any way, Adele you are the best singer I have ever herd so you can be expecting me at one of your concerts.

    Also, I highly reccemond this book. It gives us a good backround about the Adele we don't even know.

    Adele is not a smoker! Peple.

    For one thing lets get this one thing straight, Adele adkins DOES NOT SMOKE! Its so a lie. I mean come on people! If you thinks she smokes, well then you hate her. Please, Adele does not smoke. OKAY PEOPLE? So don't say that she does. What about if you were a super star? Would you want people thinking that your smoking when you're not? So don't hurt Adele's feelings. P.S Adele I'm standing up to you because i don't want people hurting your feelings. No one wants their feelings hurt. And yes i am standing up and saying STOP making fun of musical people. THANKS! P.S let me know if you want to e in the ADELE ADKINS FAN CLUB! Its a free and fun club, i would like to hear back from fans of her!

    Yes Adele is fat.

    Fantastic
    Awesome
    The best
    Thats Adele for you. She is the most talented artist in the indutry. I asked 100 people if they liked her and only 1 said no because she claimed that she has a better voice. I have heard this girl sing before. It sounds like all of the animals on the planet were about to curl up and die. And i am not comparing her to adele. No one can compare to her.

    Um...

    I am not a huge fan of Adele. I do not like many of her songs, however i think she is a very nice person with a natural singing voice. (Thank god she doesnt us Auto-tune.)
