Adele. Do I need to say anything more? I’m not going to go in great depth about this music artist because if you don’t know who she is and what she has done – then you are dumb. However I do want to tell the story of how Adele was found because that’s always the most interesting aspect to any great story.
As you might have suspected her amazement with music started at the tender age of 4. Her most influential musical idles growing up were the Spice Girls and the artist Pink, and that really shows her age. Fast forwarding to high school she graduated from the BRIT School for Performing Arts & Technology in Croydon in May 2006 (same place as Leona Lewis). While at school she recorded a three-song demo for a class project and gave it to a friend. This friend took the liberty of posting it on the social networking site MySpace.
MySpace gained her so much attention that she eventually got a call from music label XL Recordings. Now Adele was a bit skeptical of “XL Recordings” because the only music label she had ever heard of was Virgin Records. So the skeptical Adele dragged along a friend, met with XL Recordings (2006) and her first real release happened in 2007. From this point on she gains fame, awards, extreme wealth and well… the rest is history.
