Give it a Listen!

There's a British singer-songwriter you may have heard of lately. She's a young lady who commands such an audience she can go by a single name, a chanteuse with a powerful contralto voice, a recent Grammy Award winner - have you guessed who it is yet? Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, popularly known as Adele. She's only 23, but she has two CDs under her belt, eight Grammy wins, and an impressive string of hits.

Adele's latest effort, the 2011 release entitled 21, is a dark, bluesy journey through anger, heartache, and forgiveness. Inspired by a bitter break-up, the CD is named after the singer's age during production. She's released three singles off the album, "Rolling in the Deep," "Someone Like You," and "Set Fire to the Rain, " and the fourth will be the catchy track, "Rumour Has It."

If you haven't listened to Adele yet, check her out at the library. The Calcasieu Parish Public Libraries own both of her CDs, 19 and 21, and you can also download her songs for free using our online music service, Freegal. A library card holder is allowed ten free song downloads a week.
