A conservatory-trained British soul singer who separates herself from Adele Nation (and, frankly, raises the stylistic bar on Ms. Adkins) with sheer diversity: "Sing to the Moon"draws on and smoothly amalgamates jazzy melodies, pop ballads, orchestral doo-wop and smart gospel. There doesn’t seem to be anything she can't sing, belt and make her own.
