Young Uk Women Are Reminding Us Of What "soul" Means.Adele is stunning because most of us have forgotten the great black women singers of 40 - 50 years ago: Etta James, Ruth Brown, Merry Clayton, Arethra Franklin, Tammi Terrell.
Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, etc. seem plastic and fake by comparison. So British women like Adele and Amy Winehouse are having to reteach America what it means to have soul.
I have read that Adele has been fond of booze, and at times has obsessed over the man in her life. To sing like Adele does, you have to have known passion, to have felt a burning itch between your legs, to cancel your appointments and spend a weekday in bed with him.
BTW, the guy who helps Adele with her music videos is very good.
