White Girls with Black Voices
This British-born singer, songwriter breaks out of all types of boxes. In addition to her stellar voice and engaging lyrics the singer is a little bigger than the average female singer. She’s frequently addressed questions about her size, saying she feels no pressure to lose weight. Regardless of her size, when she sings she comes from a place of passion and sometimes pain that is so real you can almost pluck it from the air. Adele is no joke, so much so she recently sang Aretha Franklin’s “Natural Woman” on VH1’s “Unplugged” That is no easy feat, but Adele brings it home.
