Serena Williams has confessed that she loves to sing Adele songs when she goes to karaoke bars and is "obsessed" with the '21' singer.

The Olympic and Wimbledon champion admitted that the first thing she does when she heads to New York is take the mic for a karaoke session.

"I was just talking to my physio today about how the first thing I do when I get to New York is I'm going to karaoke," she revealed on the Late Night with David Letterman show this week.

Speaking about her choice of songs, she admitted the 'Someone Like You' star is the only star she loves to try and replicate.

"I call it the Adele syndrome, not that I have an Adele voice," she said. "My voice is so terrible."

The '21' star also received high words of praise from Canadian star Celine Dion recently who sais she had the power to "change the world".

Meanwhile, Adele is currently preparing for the birth of her first child with boyfriend Simon Konecki.

The BRIT and Grammy Award winning star is also strongly linked with recording the theme tune to the upcoming new James Bond film Skyfall.
