James Morrison Compares Teen Daughter to Young Adele

The 'You Give Me Something' hitmaker sings his teenage daughter Elsie high praise, comparing her singing skills to those of the 'Rolling in the Deep' singer.

AceShowbiz - James Morrison has compared his daughter's singing abilities to "a young Adele."

The "You Give Me Something" hitmaker has heaped praise on his teenage daughter Elsie's "natural skill" as a singer, comparing her to the "Rolling in the Deep" star, who dropped her comeback single "Easy On Me" on Friday (15Oct21).

"Elsie loves it, she's my oldest, she's already coming into that world as she's a really, really beautiful singer," he told Britain's Daily Star newspaper.

"She's got such a natural skill, and I'm just quietly honing it. Honestly, she's one of the best singers I've heard that's younger than 15 in the past 10 or 15 years. She's as good as a young Adele, she is amazing for her age. Listen out for her."

The 37-year-old singer-songwriter - who has re-recorded his biggest tracks for a greatest hits album - teased the possibility of Elsie being part of the recordings.

"She might have done some background vocals, I've got her on a few little things," he added. "It's just so cool to see her live out my dreams I had when I was younger."

"She was already in the studio at like 12 or 13 and I didn't get there until I like 22."

However, James wants his daughter to "put in the groundwork" and stay true to herself rather than finding fame on social media.

He explained, "She needs to put in the groundwork first, root herself in who she is and make sure she's not away with the fame game."

"Young kids today, everyone wants to be TikTok famous and so I'm just trying to keep her head screwed on."
