- London, March 2 (IANS) Singer Adele will join fellow musical superstars Beyonce Knowles, Lady Gaga and Amy Winehouse, when Madame Tussauds unveils a wax statue in her honour here.
"Adele is the perfect addition to the music line up here in London. She's one of the world's hottest properties right now and one of our most requested personalities," said Madame Tussauds London's public relations manager Nicole Fenner, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"In fact, we have seen a huge increase in requests for her figure since 'Skyfall' was released and the timing seems perfect to honour her after such phenomenal success with the song.
"She is one of the most influential British female artists and we know she is going to be a huge hit with our guests alongside our other pop greats. We're very excited to welcome her to Madame Tussauds London," said Fenner.
The life-size wax work of the 24-year-old will be revealed in June. It is expected to be modelled on her black gown at the 2012 Grammy Awards, where she collected six statues for her best-selling album "21".
She also recently won an Oscar for "Skyfall".
