“All good music resembles something. Good music stirs by its mysterious resemblance to the objects and feelings which motivated it.” Jean Cocteau
Putting aside the fact that Adele was named 2011 Artist of the Year, had the #1 selling album last year, being nominated for six Grammy Awards and amazingly talented beyond measure… this stripped down performance of her hit song “Someone Like You” shows us a young woman literally singing her heart out to thousands of strangers about a man she loved. The way in which her own performance moved her to tears at the end was extremely powerful. The raw emotion and intimacy she shared with the audience in that moment only gives us more reason to love and respect her even more!
The message here? Out of painful and bittersweet memories comes a beautiful story, song and stronger person (and maybe a Grammy Award if we’re lucky!)
