Adele Honors Grenfell Tower Survivors on Third Anniversary

Adele is sending her love to the survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire.

On Sunday (June 14), the 32-year-old entertainer shared a message of support during a virtual memorial on the third anniversary of the deadly London fire, which claimed the lives of 72 people.

“I want to send my love to all of you today, and let you know that I’m thinking of you, as I always do,” Adele said via People. “Even though we’re having to do this in the virtual world, online, on 2020 Zoom life as it is, it’s still so important for us to mourn together and for us to remember that night and to reflect on that and also reflect on where we are now with that.”

While reflecting on the current state of the world, Adele stressed that it is important now more than ever that we come together as a community.

“There has never been a more appropriate time for us to truly exercise camaraderie, and compassion, and open-mindedness, and persistence. Persistence for answers. Persistence for action,” Adele said. “It’s a scientific fact that human beings are pack animals, we’re not supposed to be left on our own. We need each other to survive, and that is something that I truly see in action with the Grenfell community.”

Back in June 2017, the 24-story apartment tower caught fire around 1am the night before and London firefighters fought the blaze for over 10 hours.

Over the years, Adele has sent lots of love and support to the survivors.

“I’m so sad that we’re not all together today because although it’s always a very somber event when everyone gets together, it’s also beautiful and the kids are running around — I can’t wait to hear all about them,” Adele continued. “And I know that before the anniversary next year that we can all do that and I can’t wait. I can’t wait to be there and I can’t wait to see all of you.”

“I miss you all, I can’t wait to see you all and like I said, I’m thinking of you today more than ever. Stay safe, say healthy,” Adele concluded.
