The minute you hear that voice, the hair stands up on the back of your neck and you realize this is someone special. Critically-acclaimed UK soul singer Adele released her debut album 19 in 2008, debuting at #1 on the British charts. At just 19, Adele sings like a woman three times her age.
The first single, "Chasing Pavements", characterizes her autobiographical approach, written after a brawl in a London club with her boyfriend, which sent her fleeing out the door onto Oxford Street.
