On Thursday, Helen Mirren presented Adele with the the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award at The Hollywood Reporter’s Annual Women in Entertainment Gala in Los Angeles. As Mirren spoke to Adele’s star power at the event, she likened her first time hearing the six-time Grammy winner to when she first heard music legends like Edith Piaf and Elvis Presley. Pictures, screencaptures and videos from the event have been added to the archives.

You know, there are moments in life that you never forget and none more so when you first hear an artist and a song that’s truly different from anything that’s come before and really speaks to you. And I’ll never forget the first time I had that experience was when I heard Edith Piaf sing, and then when I heard Elvis Presley sing, and I had exactly the same reaction a few decades later. I think it was about 2008, maybe, when I heard Adele singing ‘Hometown Glory,’ and this shiver went down my back. That chill that comes just a few times in your life when you realize you are listening to a brilliant and game-changing artist. And I thought, wow, a goddess walks amongst us.
