Adele Breaks Down After Dedicating Performance To Orlando Shooting Victims

Adele was truly devastated by the tragic mass shooting at a gay club in Orlando, Florida over the weekend.

The 28-year-old singer dedicated her concert in Antwerp, Belgium the the victims of one of America's worst mass shooting in history.

Over the weekend, a 29-year-old gunman entered a gay club and opened fire, killing at least 50 people.

The devastating event targeted members of the LGBTQI community who frequent the popular hotspot.

"I would like to start by dedicating this entire show to everybody in Orlando, Pulse nightclub last night," she started.

"The LGBTQIA community, they're like my soul mates since I was very young. So I'm very moved by it."

The singer quickly broke into tears, saying: "I don't know why I'm crying already because most of this tonight is pretty miserable, because my songs are f***ing miserable."


She then opened her concert with a song people could dance to, Rolling In The Deep.

Adele isn't the only celebrity to speak out against the shootings and express their support for the victims. 

Amy Schumer, Ellen Page, Lady Gaga, Elton John and Ariana Grande are among the many others devastated by the events.
