I also watched this concert on TV and just then I heard Adam’s voice, saw him and fell in love.
I consider him really handsome and sexy.
The range of Adam’s voice - four and a half octaves. It’s the maximum possible range of male vocal.
I love his songs very much and I know most of them by heart. I consider the themes raised in his songs actual and very serious.
