Adele

London singer/songwriter who in '08 went down as running sensation Usain Bolt in the 100-metre dash. In December '07, Adele won the Brit Awards Critics' Choice and since then has been known as the talent to watch out for in 2008.

The internet has contributed to the meteoric rise of an artist who has been singing all her life, but did not write her first song until she was 16. Her songs end up on My Space. Media folk pick her up. The British music press places Adele in the illustrious company of popular female entertainers such as Amy Winehouse, Kate Nash, Lily Allen and Duffy. 

Her appearance on the popular English TV show Jools Holland later helped Adele further make a name for herself. Other performances do as well, as she feels more at ease on stage than in the studio. 

She was nineteen when her aptly titled debut album 19 was released. 19 is an autobiographical, sad album with a lot of blues. Adele herself calls her music heartbroken soul. For her above-average songs, Adele uses elements from pop, blues, soul, jazz and funk. Her sources of inspiration are Jill Scott, Carole King, Jeff Buckley, Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, Lauryn Hill and especially Ella Fitzgerald and Etta James. 19 also includes a cover of Bob Dylan's Make You Feel My Love. 

Fear of flying doesn't stop her from promoting 19 in a large number of countries. Adele appears on the prestigious television programme Saturday Night Live and subsequently also breaks through in the United States. Worldwide, Adele puts more than two million albums at 19. In 2009, Adele won two Grammy Awards, one for Best New Artist and one for Best Pop Singer Performance for the top single Chasing Pavements. In '08 she cancels for North Sea Jazz, but Adele, an anti star in a soup dress, glories in July in a sold out Paradiso, Amsterdam with a pure nature performance of excellent ballads. In '09, she performs at the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam after all.
