Watch This: Adele Before She Was Big

Let me start by saying: If you haven’t heard of Adele you must be living under a rock. When I think of female singers I love, Adele is way up there at the top. Making her company at the top of my list are Regina Spektor and Florence Welch. Yes, I love Lady Gaga, but even though I love her as an artist and think she’s a great singer, as a “voice” she is not at the top of my list. Adele and the other two I mentioned have something, something that when the question of “If you could only listen to one artist for the rest of your life, who would it be” pops up their names comes screaming inside of me. I still remember the first time I listened to Adele, and then falling in love with her on the Sarah Palin episode of SNL.

Below you are going to see a different Adele, before she “made it” and you will see clearly why she made it. Many have tried comparing her to Amy Winehouse and Duffy, but even with a similar sound, her songs go deeper, if you allow them to. And if you were wondering, yes, I am mildly obsessed. Her last album, 21, keeps selling like hotcakes and I will not be surprised to see it get a bunch of Grammys, just as her previous one did.

Enjoy this video from the archives, let it sink in…

    I remember seeing her on Letterman when 19 came out. She must have had somewhat of an impact as I can still remember it all these years later :)
