Adele has been a vocal phenomenon since she stepped onto the music scene in 2006. Adele graduated from the BRIT School of Performing Arts and Technology. Just four months later, a friend uploaded Adele’s demo on MySpace. The demo received a phenomenal response and led to her being signed by XL Recordings. Her debut album, 19, made it to platinum seven times in the United Kingdom and three times in the United States.
However, is this it for the sensational vocalist? Adele stunned the crowd in Auckland, New Zealand, as she announced that this tour may be her last. Adele has been traveling on the 25 tour for almost one year straight. At her recent performance in an Auckland stadium, she said to the crowd, “I don’t know if I will ever tour again. I’ve loved it.”
Adele’s 25 tour has featured more than one surprise. The singer confirmed for the crowd in Brisbane, Australia, that the rumors were true about her and Simon Konecki being married. The couple have been together since 2011 and have a four-year-old son.
This isn’t the first time that Adele fans have been stunned during a tour. In 2008, Adele canceled the rest of her U.S. tour in order to spend time with her boyfriend. Adele later stated that she regretted making that decision and called it an early mid-life crisis. Now, the singer has admitted that she suffers from stage fright but continues to do what she does for the fans. She said, “The only reason I’ve toured is you.”
Adele’s 25 tour has been comprised of over 100 concerts in 20 countries. She will finish this tour in London at Wembley Stadium on June 28, June 29, July 1 and July 2. These four concert dates are now being coined “The Finale”. Is this the finale for Adele’s touring?
In a recent interview published by Ideamesch, the founder and CEO of Nine9 The UnAgency, Mr. Anthony Toma opened up on several issues regarding both his family and company. The interview covered a wide variety of issues ranging from personal truths like his love for the Detroit lions and his daily family life to corporate questions such as his inspiration for starting Nine9 and factors that have contributed to the survival and growth of the company.

Nine9 Talent Agency was founded more than 12 years ago in the year 2013 and the main goal of the company is to provide actors and models with the opportunities, tools and support structures that they need in order to start, develop and advance their various careers. The name of the company is actually inspired by the fact that 99% of actors and models within the entertainment industry do not have access to the facilities and support required to help them establish successful careers. This is the gap that the company now works to fill on a daily basis although in the interview Mr. Toma revealed that its establishment came about as something of an accident that happened as he was looking for grocery franchises.

When asked about the habits that make him successful as an entrepreneur, Mr. Toma attributed everything to good listening skills. He also gave credit to the Entrepreneurial Operating System designed by Gino Wickman and which the company continuously employs in all his operations. Interestingly, he pointed out failure as one of his strongest pillars for growth. He indicated that he has managed to grown by failing time and time again and was quick to recommend the same for other entrepreneurs hoping for success. His dedication to family was also evident when he outlined his regular morning routine and also when he revealed that he once spent $100 on his son’s tooth as a tooth fairy but still felt it was the best $100 he ever spent.

Rolling Stone Magazine has an article on their website where one of Elton John’s classic albums, “Honky Château,” is reviewed. Because the album came out in 1972, perhaps it’s best to say that they’re reviewing it again.
Unsurprisingly, the Rolling Stone review is quite positive, and I wholeheartedly agree with this assessment. On this particular record, John was working closely with lyricist Bernie Taupin, and the two developed a very effective method of collaboration. Taupin would write out lyrics with no thought at all to how the music behind them would go; basically, he was writing poetry. John would then look at the individual sets of lyrics and pick out the ones that he wanted to sing over musical progressions he had worked out on his own. Essentially, the two were working independently and then fusing the results.
For example, John took Taupin’s lyrics for what became “Rocket Man” and very quickly matched it up with a chord progression he thought would sound good behind it, and a classic song was born. According to the article, it only took John ten minutes – the time his band used to eat breakfast that morning – to put the pieces of the song together, and the song was put on tape that very same day. It’s a great story.
Personally, this is one of my very favorite Elton John songs. The lyrics capture the imagination and give you a sense of the narrator as a person as well provide powerful imagery related to space exploration, drugs and more while the music is strong and unconventional without being weird. It’s a near perfect marriage of words and sounds.
The Rolling Stone piece also looks at other hit songs off the record, and it’s fun to get some of the background of the context they were created in. In short, this article is well worth reading for anyone who enjoys classic Elton John material and wants to learn more about it.
