A video of a pre-fame Adele singing as a 16-year-old student has surfaced online – scroll down and click to watch.

The clip, which was posted by The Sun, shows the '21' songstress when she was a student at London's BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology – the same college attended by Amy Winehouse, Kate Nash and Jessie J.

In the video, which was shot by her old schoolmate Allan Rose, Adele performs the track 'Daydreamer', which would later go on to be the first single released from her debut album '19', on the acoustic guitar.

Rose said:

It was clear she was going to be a star. Some people were that step above everyone else. And Adele was one of them.


He also claimed that the singer hadn't changed since finding fame, adding: "She's clearly stayed grounded. She was bubbly, fun, outgoing and popular at school. Everyone is proud we spent time with this amazing talent."

Adele has recently stated that she will be heading into the studio to begin work on the follow-up to '21' in the coming weeks. Last month, it was confirmed that UK sales of the LP overtaken Michael Jackson's seminal LP 'Bad' and she is now the owner of the eighth biggest selling album of all time in the UK, with sales of 4.02 million.
