Katie Markham – With 2018 marking ten years since the sensational debut album 19 was released, Katie Markham brings an incredible performance to theatres across the UK, and now Canada, recreating the magic that the legendary Adele started a decade ago.
When X Factor finalist Katie Markham was hand-picked by Adele to appear in BBC’s ADELE Special, she never dreamed she would be both singing live with her idol on stage in London and launching a brand-new UK touring show, all within a year.
This immaculate concert production recreates the magic of Adele’s music from her three hit albums – 19, 21 and 25 – reminding audiences why they first fell in love with her beautiful music ten years ago. Katie states, “There is a real beauty to Adele’s music. I think that’s why it appeals to so many people, she lays raw emotion out for all the world to see.”
Featuring the smash hits Chasing Pavements, Make You Feel my Love, Set Fire to the Rain, Someone Like You, Rolling in the Deep, Hello and the multi-million seller Skyfall, as well as featuring a selection of songs by some of the legends that inspired Adele, Someone Like You is the quintessential show for any fan of Adele.

Katie has been singing and dancing since she was six years old, having trained at Joyce Mason School of Dance and Kimberley School of Dance in Scunthorpe. Singing remained in the background for a while due to her passion for dance but when Katie started winning singing talent contests at aged 15, she started to focus on her unique and stunning voice.
Katie continued to appear in various theatre and musical productions as well as festivals up and down the country. In 2013, she was approached to enter X Factor and got to the last 7 finalists, narrowly missing out on the judges’ houses stage. Katie emerged from the X Factor experience an entirely different person; as an artist with full confidence in her vocal ability. Not long afterwards, her agent entered her for a showcase as Adele and so the journey began.
In 2015, Katie was approached by producers of Adele Live at the BBC to appear on the show as part of an Adele tribute feature. Adele selected all the tributes herself and loved Katie’s audition video (see quotes above). She was selected as one of eight Adele performers to be in the BBC show and performed alongside her idol as part of the piece.
And so the Someone Like You show was born. Katie is absolutely thrilled to be leading the national theatre production; a show which gives her the chance to portray Adele in exactly the way she has always dreamed.
