Rumor has it that the singer, songwriter, and 15 time GRAMMY winner, Adele, is turning 34 today! For over a decade, our favorite British gal has given the world a plethora of heartbreak anthems, soulful songs, and many laughs.

She even made history by releasing a hit single that gained over 1 million downloads in a week after dropping “Hello.” Her songs like“Rolling in the Deep” and “Someone Like You” have resonated so deeply with several generations, and ever since listening to her original albums, the world was hooked on Adele. In honor of the queen’s day, we’re giving you some of our favorite Adele moments!
