Rule 5 Mid-Week: Adele

Two weekends have passed without a Rule 5 posting here. Nevertheless, many of my friends have continued to link to one of my past efforts. Here’s a short and sweet Rule 5, solely for the opportunity to say thanks to my friends and to post a video by singer-songwriter Adele, whose voice I adore.

The video under Adele’s Rolling in the Deep is Audra Mae, an Oklahoma voice, who I think Adele sounds a lot like. Audra is a rising singer-songwriter who did an exquisite cover of Bob Dylan’s Forever Young for Sons of Anarchy, and wrote Susan Boyle’s Who I Was Born to Be. The River (video) is one of my favorite Audra Mae songs.

See a list of those hosting Rule 5’s (below the photos) while I was off doing other things.
