Adele will sing at her own birthday party

Soul sensation Adele refuses to give her voice a rest when she turns 23 on Thursday (05May11) - the singer is hosting a karaoke party to celebrate her birthday.

The Brit has enjoyed a stellar 2011 so far, with her second album, 21, staying at the top of the U.S. charts for six weeks and leading the U.K. countdown for 11 weeks.

Adele will celebrate her success with a blowout birthday bash, but has no plans to stop singing during the festivities.

She says, "I'm having a karaoke party. I'll be singing R. Kelly's Ignition. I've been learning my harmonies all day."
