Adele’s life story in mu­sic and songs

The Sun (Malaysia) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

MILE­STONE PRO­DUC­TION is bring­ing an award-win­ning in­ter­na­tional per­for­mance, that cel­e­brates the life and songs of Bri­tish singer Adele, ex­clu­sively to Malaysia start­ing tonight at 8pm, at Pen­tas 1, Kuala Lumpur Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre (kl­pac). The show runs till Sun­day.

Ru­mour Has It – Adele’s Life and Songs re­vis­its this il­lus­tri­ous songstress’ me­te­oric rise to fame.

Hail­ing from a work­ing class fam­ily from Tot­ten­ham, Adele Ad­kins has a big voice and even big­ger dreams.

A pas­sion for singing and mu­sic led her to pur­sue her stud­ies in the BRIT School for Per­form­ing Arts and Tech­nol­ogy, where she stud­ied along­side fel­low pop­stars Jessie J. and Leona Lewis.

Af­ter she posted a demo from a class pro­ject on her MyS­pace ac­count, lit­tle did she imag­ine that her life would change for­ever.

XL Record­ings then launched her into star­dom, as she took the world by storm with the al­bum,

Since then, she has re­leased hits af­ter hits from a mega-plat­inum cat­a­logue of songs, and even earned an Acad­emy Award for her per­for­mance of Sky­fall, the theme for the 2012 James Bond film.

Adele’s ap­peal to the masses goes be­yond her pow­er­ful vo­cals and soul­ful lyrics. Much like how a real-life ‘rub­bish re­la­tion­ship’ in­spired her suc­cess­ful sopho­more al­bum Adele’s life story is the real in­spi­ra­tion be­hind this lat­est show.

De­but­ing in Bris­bane in 2013, Ru­mour Has It – Adele’s Life and Songs has toured more than a dozen ma­jor cities in Aus­tralia, earn­ing the Matilda Award for best mu­si­cal/ cabaret , the Groundling Award for best mu­si­cal pro­duc­tion and the Sun­day Mail Top Two Show 2013 Critic’s Choice Award.

This con­tem­po­rary per­for­mance has earned pos­i­tive re­views for its hu­mour, mu­si­cal prow­ess and the thought­ful and poignant cel­e­bra­tion of a woman who is not afraid to ex­pose her deep­est emo­tions to the world.

Play­ing Adele is the spec­tac­u­lar Naomi Price ( right) who’s carved a name for her­self in Aus­tralia for her ap­pear­ance in the coun­try’s fourth sea­son of The Voice.

Price has prior on­stage and off­stage ex­pe­ri­ences, hav­ing pro­duced, man­aged and di­rected a myr­iad of the­atre projects be­fore achiev­ing fame through The Voice, and now, with Ru­mour Has It.

Thanks to a body suit, wigs, and the use of black-lace dresses and other cos­tumes, Price trans­forms her­self into the iconic diva Adele.

She also de­liv­ers where her voice is con­cerned, and has re­ceived praise for her world-class vo­cals, which have an un­canny re­sem­blance to the Bri­tish songstress she is em­u­lat­ing.
