After growing up listening to artists as diverse as Etta James, Jeff Buckley and Jill Scott, English singer-songwriter Adele quickly developed a powerful voice of her own. Now, she's a pop success in her own right, having broken through with her 2008 debut album, 19. Click the link above to hear her perform live in concert from WXPN and World Café Live in Philadelphia, with opening act Angel Taylor.

After enrolling in the BRIT School (which produced artists such as Amy Winehouse, Kate Nash, Imogen Heap and Leona Lewis), Adele became a MySpace sensation in 2007. Drawing from her turbulent day-to-day experiences, Adele invests her songs of love and heartbreak with startling ease and maturity.

Like Adele, singer-songwriter Angel Taylor is barely out of her teens, but has already attracted mainstream attention for her debut CD, Love Travels. Taylor will perform four of her sweetly infectious songs before Adele takes the stage Friday.
