Adele's voice has got higher

Adele's voice has got higher since she had an operation on her vocal cords.
The singer made her live return - singing publicly for the first time since last November - at the Grammy awards on Sunday (12.02.12) and has noticed some distinct changes since she underwent the operation in America to save her voice.
She told Vogue magazine: 'It feels really smooth. It's not as husky as it used to be, but that's because I was singing with a polyp. And it's higher than it used to be. Which is a bit weird. I really thought if my voice changed an octave it would go lower. But it still sounds like me.'
The 23-year-old vocalist also explained how she had to build her voice back up gradually, and keep silent for a number of weeks and reportedly speaking through a voice generating phone application before humming, then eventually singing again.
She added: 'I hadn't sung for about five weeks before my surgery, and then I was in three weeks of total silence, so I have to build my voice back up to be able to belt again like I could before.
'Then I was singing along to things, singing in the shower and the bath. But it's become really easy to sing. It's a pleasure. And I haven't felt like that for quite a while.'
