MANILA, Philippines – After explosions tore through the Belgian capital of Brussels, Adele used her music to express her solidarity. During her March 22 concert at London’s O2 Arena, she sang her cover of country singer Bob Dylan’s 1997 song, “Make You Feel My Love,” as tribute to the victims of the attacks and the citizens of Brussels.
She introduced the song: “This is ‘Make You Feel My Love,’ and this is for Brussels. So I want you to all sing it with me, all right?”
Adele originally recorded the song for her debut album, 19 (2008).
A fan captured the moment, which had the attendees illuminating the arena with their phone flashlights.
After the performance, Adele said, “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. Such a beautiful song. I think they heard us.”
On Tuesday March 22, explosions ripped through Brussels’ Zaventem Airport and Maalbeek metro station. These have killed around 35 and injured more than 200 people. (READ: Around 35 dead in Brussels explosions)
