Adele: Songbird, an unofficial biography by Alice Hudson. The girl from Tottenham has come a long way. From winning her first Grammy at the tender age of just 20, her ascent to the top rank of pop superstardom has been rapid and astonishing to behold. Hers is a modern fairy tale: top producer spies a talented young singer's online video clip, signs a record deal on the spot, and the rest is history. But this fairy tale is one that has its feet firmly on the ground and sprang from hard work rather than pop-wizardry. Adele's unique mix of heartbroken soul, disarming honesty and pitch-perfect, spine-tingling vocals telling of lost love and betrayal have won her critical acclaim, a pile of awards and a vast, global fanbase. Yet despite the universal accolades she retains a girl-next-door charm that is part of her appeal. Just what is it about Adele? This gorgeous book tells her story so far, from the early days as a wannabe pop-princess to a glamorous beauty, sweeping the board at the 2012 Grammys.
