Read the full, enthralling story of the 20-something London girl who took the music world by storm. This fully updated paperback edition of the bestselling biography, Someone Like Adele, also now includes the story of how Adele found happiness with boyfriend (and rumoured husband) Simon Konecki; became a mother; and came to record the towering theme song for the James Bond movie, Skyfall. Find out about her upbringing as the child of a single mother in north London and her time at the BRIT School for Performing Arts & Technology in Croydon where her peers included Leona Lewis and Jessie J. Learn how her early performances after graduating from the BRIT school along with a MySpace demo led to her being signed up XL Records, and then voted the Brit Awards Critics' Choice even before her debut album, 19, was released. Discover how real-life heartbreak inspired many of her iconic songs, including 'Rolling in the Deep' and 'Someone Like You'; and how a diverse range of musical influences - from the Spice Girls and Gabrielle to Etta James and contemporary Nashville sounds - contributed to her record-smashing second album, 21.
