The wonder story of a wonderful star, not to forget person.
I’m done with being a bitter witch’ declares the winner of an impressive 8 Grammy Awards, Adele Laurie Blue Adkins. The singer-songwriter, who shot to fame with her records ‘19’ and ‘21’, promises never to write a breakup record again. Ironic, since both these were breakup records.
It’s amazing how this lady has created a place for herself everywhere – whether it’s the music industry, Guinness Book Of World Records or in the hearts of millions of people across the world. How did she do it?
Adele started singing at the age of 4. She’s been singing ever since. Her debut album ‘19’ rocked the music charts. It also got her 2 of her 8 Grammys. Her next album ‘21’ was one over ‘19’, much in keeping with the logical expectation. She became the first living artist to achieve the feat of two top five hits simultaneously since the Beatles in 1964. Yes, she is a phenomenon.
I won’t bother listing all the awards she’s achieved or records she’s broken: there are simply too many. All throughout her growth as a singer, performer, celebrity, there was one person beside her who constantly gave her strength- her mother. A deserted teenage single mother, she struggled immensely and has a huge contribution in what Adele has become today. She was what kept it going for her, especially when the singer was diagnosed with vocal cord haemorrhage and faced the threat of damaging her voice forever. A laser microsurgery later, she was back- at the 2012 Grammy Awards- and what a comeback. The Brighton streak in her emerged at her acceptance speech, as she yelled, with 6 Grammys in hand- ‘Mum! Girl did good.’
She certainly did. The world holds its breath as Adele continues to rise. She is just 23 years old currently. Don’t Imagine what she’ll do later. It’s scary.
