Global superstar Adele, 33, has appeared in a video remembering the victims of the Grenfell Tower tragedy, four years after the devastating fire. In the video released by Grenfell United, the Someone Like You hitmaker remembered the 72 victims who lost their lives and called for “justice” for the survivors of the fire.

There are so many unanswered questions


Speaking in the short clip, Adele appeared emotional as she paid tribute to the victims of the west London fire.

She said: “Today marks four years since the Grenfell Tower fire, and still, there are so many unanswered questions.”

The star went on to add that no one has yet been held “accountable” for the devastating loss of lives on June 14 2017.

“Still, the trial [inquiry] is taking way too long, and still, no one has been accountable for that night’s events,” she continued.

Adele went on: “I really hope that this time next year, you will have the answers that you will need to finally, finally be able to breathe together.

“I love you, I’ll see you soon, stay strong. We’re all with you”, the singer signed off.

The Grenfell Tower inquiry was established to look into the circumstances leading up to and surrounding the fire and is chaired by Sir Martin Moore-Bick.

While phase one of the inquiry was published in October 2019, the second phase was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, but resumed this week.

Following news of the fire four years ago, Adele showed her support by rushing to the scene and comforting victims of the tragedy.

While performing at Wembley two weeks after the fire, the star paid tribute to the 72 victims.

After urging attendees to donate money to help victims of the blaze, she said: “Did anyone see the video before I came on? I’ve been down to Grenfell tower.

“I can’t tell you how out of control and how chaotic it still is down there, it’s been two weeks since this happened… it’s atrocious that we can’t get answers.”

She added: “It’s our job as human beings to be compassionate… You’ll be hearing a lot more from me about [Grenfell] in the days and weeks and probably years to come.”

Adele went on to dedicate her song Hometown Glory to victims of the fire.

On the third anniversary of the fire last year, the star asked her social media followers to remember the tragedy in a short Instagram post.

In response, thousands of fans commented with green heart emojis.
