British songstress Katie Markham chatted with Digital Journal about being a part of "Adele at the BBC," where she was one of the Adele impersonators. In addition, she talks about her own Adele tribute show.
On being a part of that BBC special, where Adele disguised herself as "Jenny," Markham said, "It was the best experience of my life. I entered thinking it was just a TV pilot show that may not even be aired. To meet the biggest music artist in the world was something I could never have anticipated."
During that pilot show, she collaborated with Lisa Martin and several other Adele impersonators, which was a "great" experience for Markham. "The rest of the impersonators were really great to meet. You rarely get to speak to other tribute acts on the circuit. There was no rivalry between us, which was refreshing. I think it shows that Adele has one of the nicest fan-bases out there," she said.
Markham is drawn to Adele's music due to its purity, when compared to many other artists. "I think she is a throwback to when singers cared about what they put out there. This means that I get to sing songs packed with raw emotion. The audiences love that," she said.
When asked about her personal favorite Adele songs to perform live, she selected "One and Only," which ironically enough is the title of her tribute show. "The song is a hidden gem and a masterpiece," Markham said.
Yet another song that she enjoys performing live is "Don't You Remember" since it "pulls on the heart-strings."
On her plans for the future, she said, "I have been busy on cruise ships this year but I hope with the publicity of meeting Adele, I can perform more tribute shows around the world. I am working on some original material in the studio, and am generally open to offers from those who can offer exciting opportunities."
Markham added with a sweet laugh, "I think Adele should get all of the tribute acts to appear and open the shows on her tour."
For 2016, Markham's New Year's resolution would be to believe in herself more, as well as "to remember that dreams do come true if you work hard." "If you had told me I would have met Adele and been a part of her BBC show a few months back, I would never have believed you," she concluded.
