LOS ANGELES — Oscar-winning actress Adele shed tears as she addressed the mass shooting in Orlando, Florida during the latest concert on her ongoing tour.
The 28-year-old actress opened her show in Antwerp, Belgium, on Sunday night, by dedicating her performance to the victims.
“I’d like to start tonight by dedicating this entire show to everybody in Orlando and Pulse nightclub,” the “Hello” hitmaker said and added, “The LGBTQ community… They’re like my soulmates since I was really young,” before starting to cry in front of the cheering crowd.
The Orlando shooting killed 50 people and injured more than 50 others, making it the deadliest mass shooting in US history and the worst act of terrorism since 2001’s 9/11.
The GRAMMY winner later attempted to lighten the mood with a little bit of self-deprecation.
“I didn’t want to cry, really, because most of this tonight is pretty miserable — because my songs are f**king miserable,” she joked.
