Adele Pays Tribute To Brussels With Emotional Performance Of 'Make You Feel My Love'

"I think they heard us."


In the wake of the terrorist attacks that shook Brussels on Tuesday, many citizens of the grief-stricken city have been reaching out to their neighbors and even total strangers. Not only are they offering comfort and temporary shelter to those stranded in the metropolis, but also a sense of closeness and connection that was threatened by the bombings at the city's airport and transportation hub.

Contributing to that collective, healing spirit is Adele. Though she was in London for a concert Tuesday night, the "Hello" singer offered her voice to help ease the pain of the victims and to extend love to a nation in mourning.

"This is 'Make You Feel My Love,' and this is for Brussels tonight," Adele told the audience in a video recorded during her show at the O2 arena. "I want you to all sing it with me, alright? So they hear us."

From there, Adele's powerful but soothing voice seemed to delicately deliver the lyrics of the song that appears on her debut album, 19 — seemingly getting every note just right during her emotional tribute as fans joined in and waved their cellphones in unison.

Afterward, Adele shared how touched she was in that special moment. 

"I don't think I've ever actually been so moved before in my life at one of my shows," she says in the clip. "That was just so beautiful. Thank you very much for doing that — I think they heard us."

It's another perfect moment from her ongoing tour, which has so far seen her share the mic with a fan with autism, showcase the talent of her most creative supporters, and helped a couple get engaged
