Adele

  • Listen:
    Adele on World Cafe With enthusiastic critical reception, Adele has been rewarded with "soul sensation" status in the U.K. on the strength of her powerful voice and winning personality. Hear her perform on this archived session of World Cafe from 2008.
Adele Before. Vintage Cafe From 2008 Upon The U.S. Release Of 19M

October 28, 2013 - Today's Vintage Cafe goes back to 2008 and a session recorded before Adele won the best new artist Grammy and before the album 19 went on to sell over six and a half million copies world-wide.
All Adele had won at that point was The Brit Award's Critic's Choice Award which she talks about in her charming self-deprecating way. It's an interesting look back at a unique time. She also sings her first Top 40 hit "Chasing Pavements" and her cover of Dylan's "Make You Feel My Love."
