I like the music more than vocals, except for Ella (my all time favorite). But, there have always been a few contemporary artists that I have always liked; and, they were always women vocalists/singers/songwriters, such as Dianne Reeves, Cassandra Wilson, Joni Mitchell, Joan Armatrading and Bonnie Raitt.
I must admit that the only time I listen to popular radio is when someone else is playing it and I hear it unintended. Loud music in the car next to me or in the background at the doctor's office or a similar place is what I mean. I first heard Adele only because one of my friends insisted that I listen to '21' and my doing so changed my view on popular music.
I am totally obsessed with Adele! I play the RAFH CD in the car every single day over and over. Because I travel for my job, I will pack that CD in my bag, fly into a city, rent a car and put the CD right in, even before I set up my GPS. Then when I fly back home, to unwind, I watch the RAFH DVD. I check in on this forum regularly to see what links others have posted so I can view them. I can't seem to get enough. In my opinion (and I know that I am one of many) Adele is the single most sincere, original, talented, georgous, funny person in the music scene today. Yes, I will always love Ella Fitzgerald, but there is now room for Adele to join her at the top of my list.
