(CNN) – At this point in the year most people have turned the page on 2015, but two college freshman from Nashville are still very much fixated on a date in December.
Brady Morgan, a freshman student at Tulane, and Jamir Kirshner, a freshman at the University of Denver, met Adele at a London restaurant a few days before Christmas. Kirshner said, “She was coming by my table and my mom was like ‘Hey, Adele!'”
They figured their chance to say “Hello” to Adele would end there, but it turned out Adele was rolling in the deep end of a few glasses of wine. Kirshner said, “Well my mom said, ‘We’re big fans. We tried to get tickets to your show but it sold out in 10 minutes or something crazy,’ and she said, ‘Oh, I hadn’t heard that yet.”
Adele on the Late Late Show said, “The next day, I’m with my kids at the park, and I find this email address in my pocket of another family from Nashville who told me the show was sold out. So I got their email address to give them tickets to Nashville.”
“It was word for word the same thing I’d been telling people,” said Kirshner. Much to their surprise Adele recalled the entire encounter during carpool karaoke on the Late Late Show this week.
(Reporter: Did you ever think you’d get to hear her telling it?) “Oh absolutely not,” said Morgan. They can’t count how many times they’ve told their friend this story. Turns out Adele, is telling her friends as well.
Kirshner said, “Hopefully she’ll get back to us.”
