“This is a wonderful, hardcover book, celebrating the life and numerous accomplishments of the singer, Adele. The songstress, known for her emotional songs and larger than life voice, has won 15 Grammy awards, met with English royalty, and sung with many celebrities. This book takes the reader on a journey from Adele’s childhood to her current life in her thirties, highlighting major events like meeting Paul McCartney, releasing her first breakout album named 19, and appearing on SNL for the first time. Another important focus for this book is Adele’s vocal health. Her vocal chords have given her health issues on and off for years, and fans wondered if her voice would return. Thankfully, with scientific advancements and surgery, Adele was able to regain her powerful voice, and continue her career.
