Music Monday #5

Hello my friends its music Monday again. Some of you may have already heard of this Monday's musical artist. However for those of you who need a formal introduction into the goodness of this amazing artist, let me be the first to introduce you to the ever so lovely...

Adele

Adele was born in London. She began singing at age four and asserts that she became obsessed with voices. Adele would impersonate the Spice Girls at dinner parties and, as a preteen, she sang Destiny's Child songs at her school. To make her look like the singer Gabrielle, her mother made an eye patch with sequins, which Adele said was embarrassing. Adele went through a phase where she wore Slipknot clothing and a studded dog collar. Adele then claimed she was influenced by the music of Etta James and Ella Fitzgerald in her teens by accident, as she stumbled on the artists' CDs at a local HMV store while looking for a new hairstyle. She only got to listen to those songs for the first time as she was cleaning her room. Adele wrote her first record, "Hometown Glory" when she was 16 years old.     
At the 51st Grammy Awards in 2009, Adele won awards in the categories of Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance she was also nominated for in the categories of Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

Her voice is so powerful and mature. Hearing it gives me chills.
