Sing your soul out with Adele!

Posted on October 6, 2011


            A voluptuous woman with an English accent and a soul-singing voice rises to the top of America and the United Kingdom. Say hello to Adele Adkins!
            If you want real soul music, then you should go to Adele Adkins’ concert on October 8th at the DPAC (Durham Performing Arts Center).
            Everyone has heard of the song “Rolling in the Deep” but not everyone knows that she sold two million copies of the song just in the United States. In September she sold over three million units in the United Kingdom. Along with that, Adele was the first artist in the United Kingdom music history to sell that many copies of an album in one calendar.
            Many people are not fond of Adele because she seems depressed. An anonymous student said, “She sounds like a middle aged black woman in the late 1950’s.”  To me she comes off as a deep, helpless romantic who can only get it all out with singing.
            It is ludicrous how shallow people are about Adele. They call her names and judge her on her weight and how she smokes. I don’t know about you, but many people went and saw Justin Bieber and he is a short boy who sings like a girl. Looks do not matter. I would spend money for tickets to hear Adele sing, no matter what shape, size, or gender!
            Adele’s tour so far has become a huge hit and now many in North Carolina are getting the privilege to see her perform. If you go on Tumblr and search for “Adele Fans” it will show many blogs by people who are inspired by the warm-hearted artist. The people from the fan clubs are mostly people who have been to one or maybe more concerts of hers. One fan said, “Amazing… that basically sums her up.”
            You can go to and get tickets. They are being sold at a fast rate so hurry up and get them while you can. If you are looking for some real music, a beautiful voice, then you must go. While you are there singing along, say hello to Adele Adkins!
