"It matters how this ends, cause what if I never love again?"
Adele took a moment during her latest 25 show in Antwerp, Belgium to address the terrible tragedy that struck Orlando, Florida early Sunday morning.
The entire world is shaken after 30-year-old Omar Mir Seddique Mateen gunned down 50 people and injured 53 others in a packed gay nightclub, making it the deadliest mass shooting in the United States and the nation's worst terror attack since 9/11. CNN reports Mateen called 911 shortly before the attack to pledge allegiance to ISIS and mentioned the Boston Marathon bombers, according to a U.S. official.
There was an outpour of messages from the music community, including Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Ariana Grande, Madonna and many more, who shared their condolences for the fallen victims and to express disgust for the lingering hatred in the world.
Adele is also in shock, and spent a minute talking with fans at her latest concert to share her grief.
“I’d like to start tonight by dedicating this entire show to everybody in Orlando and Pulse nightclub,” Adele said. “The LGBTQ community… they’re like my soulmates since I was really young,” she continued before beginning to cry.
