The moment you hear her voice you realize this is someone special. Critically acclaimed U.K. soul singer Adele releases her debut album 19 in the U.S. after debuting #1 on the U.K. charts. The first single, "Chasing Pavements," characterizes her autobiographical approach, written after a brawl in a London club with her boyfriend which sent her fleeing out the door onto Oxford Street. Adele became the first recipient of the Brit Awards' newly inaugurated Critics Choice Honor in December and 19 has already been certified platinum in the U.K.Tags: pop yoobl
