Adele is the 20-something London girl who has taken the world by storm. Topping the charts for weeks on end and winning consistent international critical acclaim, Adele already has a host of awards and record-breaking achievements to her name. Although she acknowledges influences as diverse as The Spice Girls and Etta James, Adele's unique brand of "heartbroken soul" - reflecting her own deep emotions and roller-coaster love life - is hers alone. In the image-obsessed world of pop music, Adele is also widely admired for her disarming honesty and her determination to do it her way, dressing to please herself, refusing offers to use her music in advertising and staying close to her friends and family. Feisty, funny and formidable, Adele is the grounded girl-next-door with the astounding voice of a diva and despite her phenomenal success, her best may well be yet to come. This is her story so far.
