Memorials were held across the UK on Thursday morning (June 14) to honor the one year anniversary of the deadly fire in the Grenfell Tower block of public housing apartments that took the lives of 72 people. Among those marking the solemn moment with survivors and family members near the scene of the fire was Adele, who was filmed standing among the grieving and singing along to a choir performing Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and Bill Withers' "Lean on Me." According to a report, grime rapper Stormzy was also spotted in the crowd at the event where a 72-second moment of silence was observed.
Adele, who lives not far from the site of the conflagration that has been blamed on faulty cladding on the outside of the building that reportedly helped spread the flames, has been an active supporter of the victims of the fire. She and husband Simon Konecki visited the site the day after the fire to comfort victims, as well as dropping in to a local fire station to thank first responders and offer them "tea and cuddles." She also treated children who were impacted by the tragedy to a free private screening of Despicable Me 3 in August.
