Adele Shares 'Despicable Me 3' With London Fire Survivors
We have all shared in the emotional world of Adele thanks to her songs, tearful acceptance speeches and more, but on Aug. 3 families who survived June's Grenfell Tower fire in London joined the GRAMMY winner at a local Queensway movie house for a screening of the film Despicable Me 3.
At the end of June, Adele was forced to end one of summer's top-grossing tours prematurely because she damaged her vocal chords. Having stopped singing for now on medical advice, her desire to give can't be stopped as evidenced by her efforts fundraising for Grenfell families.
Although Adele has found fame and success many others can only dream of, she has always given voice to both her own challenges and others' struggles. Her charitable outreach explores new ways to add meaning to life by making a financial, public and personal difference while enriching the day-to-day for all of us.
"Being a local Londoner, she's made no secret about how personally affected she was by the Grenfell Tower blaze and wants to help in every way she can," a source told London's The Sun. "While she's working hard behind the scenes to raise cash, she wanted to treat residents to a night of fun and help take their minds off what happened."
It was indeed a night of fun for participants and Adele, and a new way for the superstar's admirers to connect to a cause.
