Adele Dedicates “Hometown Glory” to the Grenfell Tower Victims and Urges Fans to Donate

Adele has been clearly affected by the fire that broke out in Grenfell Tower some weeks ago and has since shared her support.

Previously, she visited the tragic site with her husband to comfort those affected and thank the emergency services.

The fire killed an estimated 80 people and left many more homeless, seeking shelter and basic essentials from the community.

Adele was on her first of a four-night stint at Wembley Stadium in London on Wednesday night.

The Grammy-award winning singer announced that she is using these shows to raise more money for Grenfell relief efforts.

She urged fans at her show to donate five pounds to Unite for Grenfell rather than spend it on Wembley’s “overpriced wine”.

“It’s been two weeks since the fire, and still the people who were affected by it are homeless.” The singer said in a video message before the show

“I promise that the money we raise together will go directly to the people who are living in that block.”

Adele added during the show: “I’ve been down on the ground near Grenfell Tower all week before this and I’m going straight back after these shows.”

“I’m not going to go into too much detail because a lot of the stories I’ve been told I’m not going to tell on a stage like this.”

“But I can’t tell you how out of control and how chaotic it still is down there, it’s been two weeks since this happened.”

She also wanted anyone who couldn’t donate to share the story around and keep it from disappearing from people’s memories.

“It’s our job as human beings to be compassionate, and if you don’t have a social conscience, you can grow one.”

She dedicated her song ‘Hometown Glory’ to the victims and ‘Make You Feel My Love’ to a first responder that she has befriended.

We love that Adele is so down-to-earth and eager to help anyone in dire need of it.

Please donate what you can as the victims still needs so much help.

If you can’t donate, then please share what you can to keep the attention up over this.
