Adele was in concert at London’s O2 arena last night where she gave a gorgeous performance of her cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Make You Feel My Love‘. Sung, of course, to honor the victims of yesterday’s Brussels airport and subway bombings. At least 31 people were killed in the attacks, and more than 250 injured according to the BBC.
Her performance was recorded by a fan attending the concert on her cell phone miles away from the actual stage, so Adele is only visible on the massive screen on stage behind her. But, it certainly doesn’t detract from Adele’s amazing performance or the beauty of her voice and intended emotions.
The British singer also asked fans to sing the song along with her, at which point you can see fan after fan turning on the lights on their cell phones as a tribute to those who lost their lives during the Brussels terrorist attacks. Quite touching really.
Particularly as most fans did not sing along. Because the sound of Adele singing ‘Make You Feel My Love‘ just about breaks your heart as it is.
After she sang, Adele finished by saying, “I don’t think I’ve ever actually been so moved before in my life at one of my shows, that was just so beautiful. Thank you very much for doing that. I really appreciate it. It’s such a beautiful song. I think they heard us.”
