Singer dedicates “Make You Feel My Love” to city after terrorist attacks
Adele wants to make Brussels feel her love.
On Tuesday, the “Hello” singer paid tribute to the embattled city hours after terrorist attacks left dozens dead and hundreds injured.
During her performance at the O2 in London, Adele dedicated her song “Make You Feel My Love” to the city, stating beforehand, “This is ‘Make You Feel My Love.’ This is for Brussels.”
Many fans in the crowd lit up the arena with their cell phones as Adele performed the song.
Brussels was rocked Tuesday morning by a series of coordinated attacks, including two explosions at its international airport and one at a metro station. Initial reports suggested that the death toll could be as high as 31, according to the nation’s health minister Maggie De Block.
Belgian federal prosecutor Frederic Van Leeuw said one of the explosions at the airport was likely caused by a suicide bomber, according to NBC News. He also said it was too soon to offer a precise victim count, but De Block told the Guardian that at least 11 people were killed at the airport and at least 92 were injured.
In addition, up to 20 people were killed and 130 injured at the Maalbeek metro station located near the official European Union headquarters buildings.
In the wake of the attacks Brussels has received an outpouring of support, with celebrities including Amy Schumer, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Rainn Wilson, Ryan Seacrest, Ellen DeGeneres and George Takei sending their thoughts to the city via social media.
