Adele - Adele Salutes Record Label Boss At New York Gala

Soul sensation Adele stepped back into the spotlight on Friday (21Jun13) to salute her record label boss at a New York City gala.

The British singer has made only a handful of public appearances since giving birth to her son Angelo James last year (Oct12), but she made an exception to fete Columbia Records chairman Rob Stringer.

Adele appeared at the star-studded UJA-Federation of New York event at The Pierre hotel in Manhattan to hand Stringer the Music Visionary Award.

Accepting his prize, Stringer recalled meeting the Rolling in the Deep hitmaker in 2007 before she found fame: "Your career is defined by the people you work with. Six years ago, that young lady walked into our office with her manager and said, 'Yeah, this'll do,' with a cigarette in her mouth. It's fantastic to have her here... She doesn't get out much."

Neil Diamond, Jay Z and John Legend were among those in the audience, while Haim and John Mayer performed songs to honour their label boss.

Celine Dion, Daft Punk, Patti Smith, Simon Cowell, Pharrell Williams, One Direction, Tony Bennett, Barbra Streisand and Steven Tyler also appeared in a video compilation thanking and congratulating Stringer.
