  • Adele made an appearance during the Grenfell United memorial broadcast on Sunday.

  • She paid tribute to the people who lost their lives in the tragedy, which happened three years ago.

  • She also celebrated the incredible community of Grenfell and committed herself to their continued fight for justice.

Adele joined forces with Grenfell United on Sunday to commemorate the third anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire. The memorial service paid tribute to the 72 people who lost their lives during the fire, as survivors continue to fight for justice.

During the livestream, the singer paid her respects to everyone who lost their lives in the Grenfell Tower fire in June 2017. The "Hello" performer said, "I wanted to send my love to all of you today and let you know that I'm thinking of you, as I always do. And even though we're having to do this in the virtual world... it's still so important for us to mourn together and for us remember that night and reflect on that, and also reflect on where we are now with that. And also to celebrate the lives that were lived before they were sadly taken that night."

She continued, "I think that this year, more than ever, there has never been more appropriate time for us to truly exercise camaraderie and compassion and open-mindedness and persistence. Persistence for answers and persistence for action."

"And it's a scientific fact that human beings are pack animals, we're not supposed to be left on our own. We need each other to survive," the singer explained. "And that is something that I truly see in action with the Grenfell community. I have never been so moved and so inspired by people before. Your resilience is second to none."

Adele told viewers, "It's one of my proudest things to be involved in Grenfell United and to support your fight for true justice and for the protection of other people."
