From folk serenades to larger-than-life ballads, Adele has soothed many a heartaches since 2007. Whether you were a daydreamer, chasing pavements, looking for someone or setting fire to the rain, the now 28-year-old Adele Atkins has shared her own growing up journey with her fans since she was just 19.

The North Londoner charmed us again after a hiatus with her surprise comeback album 25, letting the world eat out of her hands with the single Hello. It became a pop culture phenomenon, throwing back to iconic greetings such as Lionel Richie's very own
Hello (1983) in the most hilarious of memes.

Recently, your little one can even enjoy Adele's hits on the music series Rockabye Baby!, with lullaby versions employing bells and xylophones. For those looking to get in on her global tour, you can catch her at Glastonbury 2016, where she'll be headlining the Pyramid Stage. 10 Grammy awards later, we'd like to thank Adele for laughing and crying with us when mere words weren't enough.
