About The Show
In The Absolute Adele Tribute, Jennifer Cella delivers a stunningly accurate portrayal of the British songstress and pop icon, an artist she deeply admires. As a long time fan, the seeds for this project started taking root many years ago upon the release of Adele's debut album, "19". From minute one, Jennifer fell in love with Adele's unique style and voice, and spent hours immersed in the work of this rising star. As an accomplished singer who had already had success of her own with the world renowned Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Jennifer recognized and admired the many various vocal techniques Adele has in her vocal toolbox, giving each lyric its own color and texture. She appreciated all the nuances and tones of Adele’s amazing instrument and became an adoring fan of her work.
Jennifer’s adoration for Adele grew tenfold upon the release of her sophomore album, “21” which included hits such as “Rolling In The Deep’, “Set Fire To The Rain”, “Someone Like You” and “Rumor Has It” and catapulted Adele’s career status to bonafide superstar. Adele's next album "25" had monster hits like "Hello", "Send My Love" and "Water Under the Bridge", but Jennifer's connection to the lyrics was especially strong and resonated deeply with "All I Ask", "When We Were Young" and "Remedy", a song Adele wrote for her young son. While singing along, Jennifer felt like she was telling her own story through Adele’s lyrics. Her latest release “30” included the beautiful and poignant “Easy On Me”, which again Jennifer resonated deeply with, having shared the same life experiences that inspired Adele to write the song.
The Absolute Adele Tribute is not just a concert. It is theatre, and Jennifer plays the role of Adele. Jennifer relies on her years of acting and theatre training to accurately portray the singer. She not only sings her songs but talks to the audience, explains the origins and backstories to the songs, just as Adele interacts with her audiences at her concerts. With ticket prices to Adele’s residency in Las Vegas ranging from $1500 to $30,000 per ticket, Jennifer is excited to make the music of Adele accessible to audiences all over the country with the Absolute Adele Tribute.
