I'm Reba, and I'm from New York born and raised. I LOVE Adele. I think it's becoming a bit of an obsession, ._. Ha! =D
I would say i hopped on the bandwagon a bit late, compared to others on here. I first heard of her around the time when she was promoting 21. I knew nothing of 19. Then after I heard Rolling in the Deep i was hooooooooked. I immediately found her old songs on Youtube and bought 19 from Amazon and new every word of every song on that album WAY before 21 released. She's the reason why i was motivated (and accomplished) fixing the sound on my PC! <<< Long story, I'll share if you'd like =)
While waiting for 21 to release, i fed my fascination for her and her music, by watching old and newer interviews and performances, and she just grew on me! Both as an artist and as a person. I love how she's strong minded, witty, and sweet. She has the best voice of this generation, does not rely on gimmicks, ROCKS live, she's one hell of a writer, has an easy and genuine connection with her fans, and to top it all off her band is AH-MAZIN'!
Then 21 released and i bought the album twice (CD and iTunes) and i still can't stop listening to it! Her voice enters my ears and makes me laugh, dance, and cry inside all at the same time! I can FEEL her emotions through her songs, which is new for me. Adele is my Etta James, lol! She's the only artist where I can honestly say "I love EVERY song of theirs!" Both albums are FLAWLESS. I absolutely adore her!!! I'm bummed that I couldn't get tickets in time to see her live in NY, but i guess i'll catch her next time!:(
I just wish her the best of luck with all her shows, and that she gets lots of rest! Oh, and also, THAT SHE HAS ONE HELL OF A F*CKING BIRTHDAY NEXT WEEK!!! =D
I enjoyed reading what you both have said, but It's 3:00 am here and I'm still up! Good night!
♫And you can tell that we'll be here, for lifeeee♫
