She has amazing pipes and a great personality, and Adele proved that she’s also a good celebrity.
During her concert at the Manchester Arena in England in March, the 27-year-old invited Emily Tammam, 12, to come on stage with her to sing a duet of “Someone Like You.” Emily was spotted by Adele by holding up a sign that said it’s her dream to sing on stage with the star.
Tammem belted out the first verse of Adele’s hit in impressive fashion as she received a roar of applause from the excited audience.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Emily has autism, ADHD and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type 3, which is a disorder that affects connective tissue. That didn’t stop her from belting out the tune in front of thousands of fans. She was also a contestant in “Britain’s Got Talent” in 2014.
Emily’s disorders make her uncomfortable in some social situations, but her father Ray Tammam told ITV News Grenada that she is always comfortable on the stage.
“Emily sometimes struggles with a lot of social situations especially with small crowds of people or things where she has to do something,” Ray said. “But since she was two years old, she’s been singing and gone on a few stages and sang quite happily and shows an incredible calmness when she’s on. I knew she’d be singing.”
