A while ago, I was introduced to Adele by a musician. I say musician, because without his technical comments I am not sure I would appreciate Adele's voice to the maximum degree. I love her Brit accent; her exquisite timing; and the thrilling and nearly palpable ease with rolling scales, and musical acrobatics. What hearing her evokes in me , and the constant chills that I feel with any of her songs make her my favorite artist. Below says it all better than I ever could.

|Adele Laurie Blue Adkins MBE (//; born 5 May 1988) is an English singer-songwriter. After graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year. In 2007, she received the Brit Awards "Critics' Choice" award and won the BBC Sound of 2008 poll. Her debut album, 19, was released in 2008 to commercial and critical success. It is certified seven times platinum in the UK, and three times platinum in the US. The album contains her first song, "Hometown Glory", written when she was 16, which is based on her home suburb of West Norwood in London. An appearance she made on Saturday Night Live in late 2008 boosted her career in the US. At the 51st Grammy Awards in 2009, Adele received the awards for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.|
