Although the British singer Adele presented no album, and didn’t toured the world in 2012, she remains as one of the artists that generated more sales this year.
After a year of glory for her Grammies and a song composed for the James Bond saga, Adele was named Artist of the Year by the Associated Press (AP). Only in 2012, her album “21” sold over 10 million copies in the United States.
Within 132 votes submitted by the members and subscribers of AP, Adele easily beat other favorites like Taylor Swift; E L James, author of 50 shades of Grey; South Korean star PSY and the cast of Twilight.
The editors and members of the media were asked to cast their vote for the person that had the most influence on entertainment and culture in 2012.
Adele’s year began with a victory at the Grammys, recorded the song for the film Skyfall, and ended with the birth of her first son in October.
