Adele honored with MBE by Queen Elizabeth II

Adele is among the names recognized by the Queen in her annual Birthday Honors list.

BBC reports Adele became a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) for her services to music.

A total of 1,180 people made the Queen’s list.

Earlier this year, Adele picked up an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a Brit Award for her James Bond theme, “Skyfall.”

The singer has released two albums, “19” (2008) and the smash “21” (2011), which has sold more than 26.5 million copies worldwide.
