After Wednesday’s terror attack outside of Parliament in London, British singer Adele joined dozens of other artists and celebrities in honoring the five victims who tragically lost their lives. During a concert in Auckland, New Zealand, she gave an emotional performance of “Make You Feel My Love” by Bob Dylan.

“Today there was a terror attack in my hometown of London,” she said to the audience. “I’m on the other side of the world, and I want them to see our lights and to hear us. It’s very strange not being home. All I want to do today is be at home with my friends and family. Everyone’s fine, but there are four people who aren’t fine so let’s dedicate this to them tonight.”

The singer was born and raised in London, so the attack understandably — and literally — hit home for her. The assailant, identified as 52-year-old Khalid Masood, plowed a car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before leaping from the vehicle just outside of Parliament. He then stabbed a police officer before being shot and killed himself.
