Adele is the most successful singer of our time, with an astonishing ten Grammys, four Brit Awards, an Oscar and a Golden Globe. It’s no surprise that this record-breaking British talent from modest beginnings in Tottenham is on track to becoming a billionaire by the age of thirty, but perhaps most amazing is that all the accolades, all the commercial success, have been squeezed into just two albums. Her third album – 25 – was released today, again putting Adele’s incredible voice centre stage, punching out soul-piercing songs with extraordinary power. There is much more to this awe-inspiring singer than the voice that has captivated the world. On 60 Minutes, Liz Hayes discovers a woman who despite having one of music’s biggest voices is refreshingly irreverent and very candid.
