Adele...Concert Review

How does one describe the voice of an angel? Soft, yet passionate? Gifted? Angelic, of course could be used too. But, cute? Would you take a singer serious if you thought her performance was cute? For Adele, yes you should.

With her cute, playful sense of humor and angelic voice, Adele thrilled the audience through a rollercoaster of emotions.

Making up for her cancelled Minneapolis First Avenue date, Adele serenaded the St. Paul Xcel Center crowd (8/24/11) as if it were only you and her in an intimate setting, then asked the audience to pay tribute to Amy Winehouse and thousands of cheering fans obliged with their cellphones( which have replaced lighters) and lit up the arena.

Hard to describe someone like you(Adele), thoughts of Norah Jones as she smoothly made her way from one tune to the next, including her "19" hit of "Chasing Pavements". One got the sense of maybe, Bonnie Raitt then shortly thereafter she pleasantly surprised us and crooned a Raitt classic, "I Can't Make You Love Me", introducing it as her favorite song and honoring Bob Dylan with " Make You Feel My Love".

Then there was, "Someone Like You", co-written by Minnesotan Dan Wilson, shows there's truly noone like Adele.

Dining with three smiling angels before the show then having the pleasure of listening to one, made the evening a heavenly experience!
