Adele was moved to tears while dedicating her Antwerp concert to victims of the shooting at Pulse nightclub, all of whom were members of Orlando's LGBTQA community simply trying to enjoy themselves in a safe space. 

The powerhouse vocalist has a strong LGBTQA fan base who have supported her since day one, making this devastating hate crime all the more personal.

"I'd like to start tonight by dedicating this entire show to everybody in Orlando and Pulse nightclub," an emotional Adele told the crowd. "The LGBTQA community, they're like my soul mates since I was really young, so I'm really moved by it."

Adele encouraged fans to dance to the few upbeat songs she has on her roster, saying: "I have two songs that sound happy, but they're not, and if you'd like to dance, this is your final chance. Literally.… So if you'd like to dance, please join me now. Let's make some noise."

Now is definitely the time for mourning and solidarity, but honoring the Orlando shooting victims with a dance party also seems like a pretty great call. Our thoughts continue to be with the LGBTQA community at this devastating time. 🌈
