MUSIC – Adele’s songs often make fans cry, but fans also know how to make the singer cry. During her residency in Las Vegas on January 27, she burst into tears on stage after seeing a fan show her a photo of a woman. A photo that the singer understood to be that of ” wife ” of the person concerned, whose absence at his side would be explained by his death.
As Adele performed ‘When We Were Young’ while walking through the audience, the man held out his phone at arm’s length to show her the snap on his screen, as shown in the video at the top of the article. Seeing him, the singer put her hand on her heart, touched.
” It’s so beautiful “
But the emotion did not really hit her until a few minutes later, once back on stage. Adele sang her hit “Someone Like You”, which she dedicated to this fan. At the end of the song, she explained why she was so emotional: “I wish you could see what I saw when I walked into the audience. There was this man — he’s right there,” she said, before bursting into tears.
“Do you see him holding his phone up? I think that’s his wife on his screen. And I don’t believe she’s here.” the singer continued, assuming the fan is a widower. “It really moved me a lot”.
She then spoke directly to him to express her condolences. “I’m sorry, I didn’t understand what you were showing me before going back on stage”she apologized, crying.
The seven-time Grammy-nominated artist continues to marvel as she watches her fans in the audience: “I see these little bubbles of people’s lives when I pass and it’s so beautiful”, she said. With her albums, which are always very moving and personal, she returns the favor.
