Synopsis

Adele’s powerful voice and breathtaking songs have seen her top the charts around the planet, collect millions of admirers and win dozens of awards. When she became a mother, in 2012, her fans rejoiced in a fairy tale moment for a young woman who has known so much pain in her personal life. At last, it seemed, she had it all. But who is Adele? This book traces her story from a humble childhood in London, where she began singing at the age of four, through to her phenomenal success of her first two albums, 19 and 21. It then brings her remarkable story up to date, examining her health scare, motherhood and triumphant comeback, singing “Skyfall” at the 2013 Oscars ceremony. Along the way, this unique book uncovers how her troubled private life influenced her heartbreaking tracks and how she overcame a string of obstacles that threatened to derail her career. Here, you will discover the fascinating truth behind all the highs and the lows experienced by this fun, formidable woman, whose songs have become national anthems for the heartbroken. Adele has won well over 70 major musical prizes including Grammys, Brits and an Oscar—all before she turned 25. Yet she remains fully grounded, and regards the glitzy world of show business with an old-fashioned English combination of amusement and healthy suspicion. So here is Adele in all her glory: the curvy girl next door who compared the world. In this fully updated edition of his internationally bestselling biography, Chas Newkey-Burden reveals the woman behind the music.
