British singer Adele will be handed an MBE on Thursday at the Buckingham Palace. Earlier in June, she made it to the Queen’s Birthday Honors’ list for her services to the music industry. Now she will be handed the title Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.
The twenty five year old singer, who hit the spotlight after her debut album called 19 in the year 2008, has seen worldwide success after releasing her 2nd album called 21 in the year 2011. The album topped music charts in over thirty countries in the world and it was number two in the United Kingdom for twenty three weeks selling over 7 million copies.
After spending twenty four weeks, getting the top position in the United States, it was certified as diamond. Adele is also the very first woman in the history of Billboard Hot 100 t have 3 singles in top – ten as a lead artist.
Earlier in February, she also won an Oscar for ‘Skyfall’, her James Bond theme song, which she both produced and wrote.
Right now, the singer is busy preparing for festive season as she is all set to celebrate Christmas with her fiancé Simon Konecki and little son Alfred at their home in Brighton.
Adele’s smash hit album 21 has topped Amazon.com’s all time best selling albums. Her 2011 record has beaten the likes of Mumford & Sons, Susan Boyle to snatch the title. Susan Boyle’s debut album called I Dreamed A Dream is behind Adele in the 2nd spot, while original Broadway cast of Wicked and Stephen Schwartz are at number three position.
