In 2003 the Guinness Book of World Records honored Adelaide Hall with the following citation: "Adelaide Hall is the most durable recording artist having released material over eight consecutive decades. The jazz singer's first record 'Creole Love Call' was recorded with Duke Ellington on 26 October 1927, and her last was made on 16 June 1991 at the Cole Porter Centennial Gala.".

Adelaide Hall appears in the earliest post-war BBC tele-recording in which she performs 2 songs, plays a ukulele and dances accompanied by the BBC orchestra recorded live during her performance at RadiOlympia, London in October 1947.

A 1929 colour lithograph poster designed by the French graphic artist Paul Colin depicting Adelaide Hall was sold in New York in 2003 for $176,500.00. The poster was designed to publicise the Broadway musical revue 'Blackbirds' that transferred to the Moulin Rouge, Paris in 1929 which starred Adelaide Hall.
