In the new list of the hundred most influential people of the year from TIME magazine, there is a place for, among others, Adele (34). The singer is named in the category icons, along with fellow artists Mary J. Blige (51) and Jon Batiste (35). Actor Keanu Reeves (57) and tennis player Rafael Nadal (35) are also an influential icon, according to TIME.

The American magazine has several categories in which someone can be included as an influential person.

During the TIME100 Gala on Thursday 9 June, all influential people will be honored and the achievements that have made them included in the list will be remembered. Mary J. Blige and Miranda Lambert then provide a performance, according to music magazine Billboard.
