The Adele Songbook: X Factor finalist stars in tribute show to the award winning singer
PUBLISHED: 15:00 06 December 2018
An X Factor finalist will be recreating the magic of Adele’s music from her three hit albums in Hornchurch.
With 2018 marking 10 years since the Adele’s debut album 19, was released, Katie Markham will be performing songs from the popular ballad singer in Someone Like You: The Adele Songbook at the Queen’s Theatre.
When Katie was selected by Adele to appear in the BBC Adele Special presented by Graham Norton, she never dreamed she would be both singing live with her idol on stage in London and launching a new UK touring show all within a year.
She said: “It’s a concert style production that celebrates the music of Adele.
“We perform all of the hits people know and love along with covers of songs from those who inspired her. There are acoustic moments alongside the big hits.”
The concert includes songs from Adele’s hit albums 19, 21 and 25 including the hits Chasing Pavements, Make You Feel my Love, Set Fire to the Rain, Someone Like You, Rolling in the Deep, Hello and the multi-million seller Skyfall.
Adele co-wrote Skyfall for the James Bond film of the same name and the song has since won an Academy Award, a Grammy Award, and a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song.
Katie will also be performing a selection of songs by some of the legends that inspired Adele such as Etta James, George Michael and the Cure.
The X Factor finalist added: “There is a real beauty to Adele’s music. I think that’s why it appeals to so many people, she lays raw emotion out for all the world to see.
“I’ve always loved Adele and her music from her first album to the B side tracks that very few people have heard before.
“I think I am attracted to her music because it is so emotional and I am an emotional performer. I often find myself welling up when singing some of her hits.”
Someone Like You: The Adele Songbook will be playing at the Queen’s Theatre on January 14 in 2019.
