A source commented on Adele’s charitable gesture, saying such kindness is a “priority” for the singer and is tied to her identity as a Londoner.

“Adele sees her work in the community as a full-time priority now her touring days are over for the foreseeable future. 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.

“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 and organised a private viewing of the brand new Despicable Me 3 movie. Everyone was overwhelmed by her generosity.”

It’s great to see people using their influence and privilege for the benefit of others, without seeking spotlight for their good deeds. I certainly hope to find “someone like you”, Adele!
