"Today there was a terror attack in my hometown of London," Adele told 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 [victims of the attack at the time] who aren’t fine so let's dedicate this to them tonight," the GRAMMY winner said as she launched into a performance of "Make You Feel My Love."
Adele wasn't the only British celebrity missing home in wake of the tragedy. Late night host, James Corden, shared similar remarks during The Late Late Show on Wednesday, hours after the attack.
"It was funny watching the news today I felt a really long, long way from home," Corden shared with viewers. "It's funny, when something happens in your hometown, you don't have a feeling of being glad that you're so far away. What you feel is that you wish you could be there with loved ones to stand alongside them."
The act of terror occurred outside the Houses of Parliament in London's Westminster area. According to The Guardian, the attacker has been identified as 52-year-old Khalid Masood. The British-born suspect killed five people, before being fatally shot by police.
