If you haven’t heard, there’s this singer that’s beginning to attract the attention of the music-listening masses as of late. Her name is Adele and while I’m no music industry bigwig like Boz Scaggs or David Cassidy, allow me to be the first to put out there that there’s a pretty decent chance this Adele gal might be the next big thing, so if I were you, I’d keep an eye on her.
One person who is way out in front of the coming Adele phenomenon is Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis. As you can see from the footage above recorded during a recent spring training game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Kipnis entertains himself by mumbling lines from a song I assure you will one day be a modest hit: “Someone Like You.” This guy is with it, man. Prematurely hip to what all the kids will be listening soon enough.
And to top it off, the guy has a decent voice. He just needs to work on his enunciation a bit. Make sure the folks can understand the words that you’re singing, I say.
