On September 14, the iconic and unbelievably talented singer-songwriter, Amy Winehouse, would have turned 33 years old. Tragically, Amy’s legendary career was cut short after she passed away in 2011 following her battle with alcoholism.

The world both mourned for and celebrated Amy on Wednesday, remembering all of the musical gifts she left us before she had even entered her 30s.

Adele, who also went to the BRIT School in London along with Amy, has never kept quiet about the massive impact that Amy Winehouse had on her as a songwriter and musician.

And during her concert on Wednesday — Amy’s birthday — Adele paid an incredibly moving tribute to Winehouse.

While performing at TD Garden in Boston, Adele dedicated her performance of “Make You Feel My Love” (originally by Bob Dylan) to the late songstress. Before the music started, Adele addressed the crowd, describing the incredible inspiration she found in Amy:

The artist continued:

Same, Adele.

She then asked the crowd to hold up their phones to create “a sky full of stars,” and began to sing. What a beautiful moment demonstrating the profound talent of two genius women.
