"Rumor Has It" someone's turning 24 today. Yes, the record-breaking, multi-platinum queen of breakup songs is having a birthday!
The supertalented singer and songwriter kicked off her career with a bang, receiving two Grammy awards in 2009 for her first album, 19.
It hasn't all been awards and accolades, though -- her blockbuster second album, 21, was all about heartbreak, and in 2011, Adele had to cancel a number of tour dates in order to undergo microsurgery on her vocal cords.
But she was back with a bang at the 2012 Grammys, giving an amazing performance and walking away with a record-tying six awards. And the megahits just keep on coming -- Ms. Adkins recently snagged 18 Billboard Award nominations!
We can't wait to see what she does next. Perhaps a happy birthday this year will lead to a happy album next year? No matter what this songbird does, we're sure it'll be music to our ears.
