WATCH: Adele Tearfully Dedicates Show to the Victims of the Orlando Shooting
“The LGBTQ community, they’re like my soulmates…”
Last night (Jun. 12, 2016), Adele took a moment before beginning her performance in Antwerp, Belgium to dedicate her show to the victims of the Orlando shooting. “I’d like to start tonight by dedicating this entire show to everybody in Orlando at Pulse nightclub. The LGBTQ community, they’re like my soulmates since I was really young so I’m really moved by it,” she said before breaking down in tears.
While obviously devastated, the singer tried to lighten up the mood joking, “I don’t know why I’m crying really, because most of tonight is pretty miserable, because my songs are fucking miserable.”
