This book explains Adele's upbringing as the child of a single mother in North London and details of her time at the BRIT School for Performing Arts & Technology in Croydon where her peers included Leona Lewis and Jessie J. It details how her early performances led to her being voted the Brit Awards Critics' Choice even before her debut album was released. It explores how real-life heartbreak inspired many of her most powerful songs, and relives her appearance on "Saturday Night Live" in 2008 which led to her US breakthrough. Learn about the newly-discovered musical influences which contributed to her second album, '21', and the stories behind its record-breaking success. Read how, despite her astonishing success, nerves and stage-fright continue to plague Adele and her battle with laryngitis which derailed an entire US tour. Discover her diverse influences - ranging from the Spice Girls and Gabrielle to Etta James and contemporary Nashville sounds.
