Following Wednesday’s(March 22nd) heinous crimes in London, Adele paid tribute to the victims of the terror attack during a concert in Auckland, New Zealand.
On Wednesday, the capital of England, London, was rocked by a terrorist attack, which saw 52-year-old Khalid Masood, drive down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, before attempting to make his way into the Houses of Parliament. Four people have died in the attack, including a police officer, with 29 still being treated in hospital, seven of whom are in critical condition.
Speaking in the House of Commons, Prime Minister Theresa May said that the nation “was not afraid and our resolve will never waver in the face of terrorism,” with London Mayer Sadiq Khan saying that “Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism.”
Now with some moving words, Londoner Adele has given a heartfelt tribute to the victims of Wednesday’s attack while performing her show in Auckland, New Zealand.
Pausing her concert, Adele paid homage to her “soulmate” London.
“Today there was a terror attack in my hometown of London,” she said. “I’m literally on the other side of the world and I want them to see our lights and to hear us.”
The singer dedicated her cover of Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love” to the Capital, saying:
Yesterday night (23rd March), a candle lit vigil was held in London’s Trafalgar Square to honor those who had lost their lives, and those still in hospital, with Mayor Sadiq Khan making a moving speech.
Despite reports that Islamic State had claimed responsibility for the attack, the Metropolitan Police have yet to confirm whether Khalid Masood had any connection to the terrorist organization, with the police suspecting that the attacker acted alone.
Our thoughts are with those who have been affected by these atrocities.
