WATCH: Adele Wears Rainbow Flag In Concert To Honour Orlando Massacre Victims

During her show in Antwerp, Beligum, Adele dedicated her performance of Bob Dylan’s “To Make You Feel My Love” to the victims of the massacre in Orlando, donning a rainbow-coloured cape as a tribute to the slain.

“It’s completely broken my heart,” the singer admits before launching into an emotional rendition of the fan-favourite song.

Meanwhile in New York City, Rufus Wainwright addressed the tragedy during his two-night stint at Carnegie Hall by performing a Judy Garland classic — but not one you might expect.

“It’s been a really tough time for LGBT people — I know because I’m feeling it,” said the openly gay singer, a tremor in his voice. “This I direct at people who aren’t gay, to let them know we’re really f***ed up by this, even if we might not show it… If you’re not gay, check in with your gay friends and give them a hug, because it’s been very difficult.”

Rather than one of Garland’s ballads, reports Entertainment Weekly, Wainwright instead launched into the uptempo “Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart,” adding: “Treat this song as a hug to the world, and making it a better place.”
