Adele is leaving no note unsung. The superstar opened up about the personal upheaval that inspired “30,” her first new album in six years, telling Oprah in an exclusive CBS sit-down.
Adele and Oprah’s chat aired Sunday night alongside a star-studded “One Night Only” concert at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.
The British singer-songwriter, known for her soulful sound has made her an international success with hits like “Rolling in the Deep”, “Skyfall” and “Hello” has made a return to the music industry.
Adele brought the house down on November 14 with her two hour CBS Prime special, which was partially filmed in front of an audience filled with Hollywood A-listers.
These included Melissa McCarthy, Ellen DeGeneres, Tyler Perry, James Corden, Gabrielle Union, Gordon Ramsey, Dwyane Wade, Drake, Oprah Winfrey, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kris Jenner, Lizzo and more.
Looking sleek in a black mermaid ballgown and elegant updo, Adele sang on the front steps of the observatory.
The concert was Adele’s first since 2015 when she performed Adele: Live in New York City. In her “One Night Only” concert, Adele performed four songs “Easy on Me”, “I Drink Wine”, “Hold On”, and “Love Is a Game” from her newest album.
Adele not only held a concert for all her loving family and celebrity friends but surprised everyone when she helped one of her loyal fans with an onstage proposal.
At Adele’s first concert in more than four years, the singer invited one couple to have a special moment at the event. Quentin Brunson surprised his girlfriend of seven years, Ashleigh Mann, by bringing her to the Adele special and proposing to her in front of the audience and TV cameras.
Around 10 million people will remember the extraordinary engagement. The couple who had been dating for 7 years finally tied the knot after the blindfold came off, and on bended knee, Brunson popped the question.
Anticipation for the accompanying TV special was palpable: the 33-year-old, one of the world’s bestselling artists, has been on a six-year hiatus — During which she raised a son, married and divorced, and lost 100 pounds.
During her sit down interview with the legendary Oprah Winfrey, the Grammy Award-winning singer revealed that she highly anticipated new album, which is set to be released on 19 November 2021, is dedicated to her son.
“The whole album is not about him, it’s about me and I just wanted him to hear me talking very deeply about who I am and about how I feel about the divorce. I don’t know If I will ever be able to have that conversation with him in real life” – Adele
