Adele Honors Amy Winehouse in Concert: ‘I Owe 90 Percent of My Career to Her’
Adele paid tribute to the late Amy Winehouse during a concert at Boston's TD Garden Wednesday night (September 14), on what would've been the Back to Black singer's 33rd birthday.
“I feel like I owe so much of my career to [Amy Winehouse],” Adele began. “Her first album Frank -- that record really changed my life…I used to see her on TV or in magazine shoots with a pink electric guitar, and I used to think she was the coolest motherf---er on the face of the Earth.”
The "Hello" singer continued, telling the crowd Winehouse inspired Adele to start writing her own music.
"And because of her, I picked up a guitar and because of her, I wrote my own songs. The songs I got signed on were the songs that I wrote completely on my own. If it wasn’t for her, that wouldn’t have happened. I owe 90% of my career to her," Adele continued. "I’m obviously completely happy with all the music that she left behind because it’s all genius. But every day, I wish I could hear a new song from her.”
She then asked the crowd to hold up their phones in honor of Winehouse, and launched into a cover of Bob Dylan's "Make You Feel My Love," which she dedicated to the late singer.
