Hillary Clinton has spoken about music in a Miami interview today (March 10), calling Adele her “go to voice.”
Clinton sat down with SiriusXM and talked about a hypothetical radio show, talking through what she’d play if she were put in charge. The answer is a lot of female singers, some classical music, and some classic rock, but Adele was at the heart of Clinton’s response, with Sheryl Crow also getting a mention.
“I’m currently into Adele. That is my go-to voice,” Clinton said. “I have such a huge admiration for her skills, her abilities and her personality.”
Classical music got a nod as a kind of work background option, with Clinton saying: “You’re doing a lot of paperwork. You’re trying to get through it. You don’t have to listen to the lyrics. It really is a way of taking it all in.”

Clinton’s democratic rival, however, seems to have had more luck attracting artists to his campaign, with Bernie Sanders having unveiled a full list of artists supporting him back September of 2015.
Each signatory has signed on their own behalf, but Sanders’ support base clearly includes plenty who can claim high-profile musical influence, including all of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chris Shiflett of Foo Fighters, Jeff Tweedy of Wilco and The Wonder Years’ Dan Campbell.
Jello Biafra of The Dead Kennedys, System Of A Down man Serj Tankian, Lou Barlow of Dinosaur Jr and Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore are also listed.
Alongside the musicians, actors Will Ferrell, Juliette Lewis and Susan Sarandon feature, as does Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
