Adele took part in a virtual memorial service on Sunday to commemorate the third anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire. The service, organized by Grenfell United, paid tribute to the 72 people who are known to have died, as well as the survivors of the fire. 

During the live-streamed service, Adele paid her respects to the victims of the fire and praised the Grenfell United community for their strength and persistence in the fight for justice. “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, online, on 2020 Zoom life as it is, 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,” The singer said.

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

“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. And that is something that I truly see in action with the Grenfell community,” the singer added.

“I have never been so moved and so inspired by a group of people before. Your resilience is second to none. 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,” she said.
