Turn on any radio station in the world and you will probably hear Adele. Go to Mars right now and I'm pretty sure if there is life on that planet, they're playing Adele. And for good reason.
There are a few artists in my life who I can think back and remember where I was when I first heard them. When you're so utterly moved by something that you know you'll never be the same again. When I first heard Adele, I was on tour, alone in a hotel room in London, watching her sing from a rooftop on YouTube a song called "Hometown Glory." I thought, Who is this creature? This voice! Her tone! Why is the entire world not watching this video?
I'm always so happy when the world catches on to something great. Especially when it's authentic talent, great songwriting and a unique package. I am so relieved that Adele possesses the kind of beauty that she does, that she's crass and funny and that she sings live and incredibly. Her success renews hope in me that the world I live in has good taste that we still occasionally come back to what's simple, and simply amazing. I can't wait to hear what she does next.
