I will say this and then hide, I guess. But I don't understand the massive worldwide appeal of Adele - why is she selling umpteen millions of album and winning armfuls of Grammys? I mean, IMO, one can hear female voices that good in churches all around the country every Sunday.
I don't get it.
Is she the current SueBo? Is that it? I know she has a more commanding stage presence than SueBo. Can someone who loves her explain it to me?
LOL- No reason to duck or hide! There are tons of people who don't like Adele. Some aren't into that type of music or they dislike those types of voices.
Why is Adele doing so well? IMO, it is the combination of several things that is appealing to a broad spectrum of people. The way she puts words together, especially inside the music, is a gift. People can relate to the lyrics of her songs. She sings them in a way that is emotionally raw. You can hear the pain behind her words. Adele is the opposite of the Pop Divas. She has problems with stage fright and has said she often times throws up before going on stage. She is overweight, writes most of her songs when she is drinking and she cusses like a sailor. Adele is someone who a large number of people can relate to.
Adele and SuBo shouldn't even be in the same sentence together! SuBo records covers and has zero interpretation skills. SuBo was selling a story, Adele can actually write music and lyrics and connect on a emotional level to her songs.
Thanks for this. Nicely written and now I understand as I was having a similar problem with Adele.
