Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, better known simply as Adele, is an English singer-songwriter and musician. Adele was offered a recording contract from XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace in 2006. The next year she received the Brit Awards "Critics' Choice" award and won the BBC Sound of 2008. Her debut album, 19, was released in 2008 to much commercial and critical success. The album is certified four times platinum in the UK, and double platinum in the US. Her career in the US was boosted by a Saturday Night Live appearance in late 2008. At the 2009 Grammy Awards, Adele received the awards for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.

Adele released her second album, 21, in early 2011. The album was well received critically and surpassed the success of her debut. 21 helped Adele earn six Grammy Awards in 2012 including Album of the Year, equalling the record for most Grammy Awards won by a female artist in one night. The album has also helped her receive numerous other awards, including two Brit Awards and three American Music Awards. The album has been certified 16 times platinum in the UK; in the US the album has held the top position longer than any other album since 1985.

The success of 21 earned Adele numerous mentions in the Guinness Book Of World Records. She is the first artist to sell more than 3 million copies of an album in a year in the UK. With her two albums and the first two singles from 21, "Rolling in the Deep" and "Someone Like You", Adele became the first living artist to achieve the feat of having two top five hits in both the UK Official Singles Chart and the Official Albums Chart simultaneously since the Beatles in 1964. With her third release from the album, "Set Fire to the Rain", becoming her third number one single in the US, Adele became the first artist in history to lead the Billboard 200 concurrently with three Billboard Hot 100 number ones.

Adele is the first female artist to have three singles in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 at the same time, and the first female artist to have two albums in the top five of the Billboard 200 and two singles in the top five of the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously. 21 is the longest running number one album by a female solo artist on the UK and US Albums Chart. In 2011, Billboard named Adele artist of the year. In 2012, Adele was listed at number five on VH1's 100 Greatest Women In Music, and the American magazine Time named Adele one of the most influential people in the world.

Adele : Songs for Treble Voices

Review: Adele is currently the most acclaimed female singer of the era and her songs are hits worldwide. Have your choir singing the latest hit music. Adele returned to the pop charts in spectacular style, breaking records and achieving tremendous commercial success. This soulful piano ballad evokes themes of nostalgia and reflection for a wonderful choral showcase for choirs of all ages and levels.From her second album 21 and also performed by Gwyneth Paltrow on Glee "Turning Tables" has a piano accompaniment that is almost classical in approach, the reflective vocals express emotion of deep melancholy tinged with hopefulness. "Someone Like You" opens with a single voice on the opening verse, the vocal textures gradually build into a full-voiced chorus that expresses the emotional message of the song. Ideal for all types of choral ensembles! "Rolling in the Deep" can be performed a cappella, as in the GLEE version, or with the bluesy, soulful accompaniment. The all-girl Troubletones sing a phenomenal mash-up of two Adele hits in Season Three. Alternating between the aggressive "Rumour Has It" and a more accepting "Someone Like You," this epic pairing offers solo opportunities and powerful vocal backups. A fantastic SSA feature!

Songlist: Turning Tables, Someone Like You, Rolling In The Deep, Rumour Has It / Someone Like You, Hello
