    why does everyone have to make it about who is better

    John Legend AND Adele are both two of the most talented vocalists out right now and I think this is a great cover

    I like his version. It reminds me of when I used to go to my great grandmother’s church.

    He always sound like he’s crying. The arrangement is unique and different, but nobody should cover an Adele song.

    I think it may have sounded better if he’d had some music behind him, but I think it was beautiful…It did have a Negro spiritual vibe about it. I felt this version just as much as Adele’s version, and I adore them both. He’s paying homage to a talented artist, not trying to do it better than her (as if he could, lol.
