The 28-year-old singer’s show in Boston landed on what would have been Amy‘s 33rd birthday.
“I feel like I owe 90 percent of my career to her,” Adele told the crowd. “Because of her, I picked up a guitar and because of her, I wrote my own songs. The songs I got signed on were the songs that I wrote completely on my own – if it wasn’t for her, that wouldn’t have happened… Her first album, Frank, it really changed my life.”
“I’d see her on TV or in magazine shoots with a pink electric guitar and I used to think she was the coolest mother—-er on the face of the Earth,” she added.
Adele dedicated her cover of the classic Bob Dylan song “Make You Feel My Love” to the singer.
