Haunting Performance

I took a beginner's singing class recently and one of the assignments was to write our own lyrics. Ths point was that, by writing our own lyrics, we would sing differently. The best singers, after all, don't just spout out meaningless words. They really tell a story. The most recent and stirring example of this for me was Adele at the VMAs. I've watched this performance numerous times and, every time, it gives me chills. The performance is strikingly emotive. To me, it looks like she's experiencing her breakup right there on the stage and the man she's talking to is standing somewhere in the audience.
