Adele emotionally pays tribute to Orlando shooting victims during Belgium concert

Adele broke down in tears on Sunday night when she paid tribute to the victims of the mass shooting in Orlando during her concert in Belgium.

The singer became emotional after opening with two songs and pausing to dedicate the show to the victims of the largest mass shooting in U.S. history at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, which left 49 dead and 53 wounded.

"The LGBTQIA community...they’re like my soulmates since I was really young, so I’m really moved by it,'' she told the crowd in Antwerp before breaking into tears.

Adele similarly paid tribute to the victims of the terror attacks in Brussels in March, dedicating the ballad "Make You Feel My Love" to them during her show in London.

Her emotional dedication to the Orlando victims was one of many touching tributes on Sunday, including James Corden's message at the beginning of the Tony Awards.
