Among the many who want to pay tribute to the victims of the horrific attacks in Brussels on March 22, Adele has now joined that powerful chorus by dedicating her version of “Make You Feel My Love” while performing in London to those who lost their lives.
Prior to singing the Bob Dylan original made famous by Billy Joel, Garth Brooks and even Adele herself, the singer said, “This is for Brussels,” and asked the crowd to join in. Adele was wrapping up her six-show stint at London’s 02 Arena last night as part of her first world tour in several years. During the short time she’s been on tour, the “Hello” singer has already proven to be a force for good, visiting sick fans and helping more than one attendee propose.
Information is still pouring in about the attack a day after more than 30 people were killed and 200 were injured in attacks throughout the Belgian capital. In addition to news about the suspected attackers, there was a characteristically collected response from President Barack Obama. In a unifying gesture, the world at large rallied around the city via the hashtag #JeSuixBruxelles, sharing original art that either expressed solidarity with the world capital or showed the city moving on without giving in to hatred.
