She asked Adele to facetime or call her daughter. Even better, Adele came in person for a visit.  “I can’s believe it, I’m just over the moon,” the Belfast Telegraph quotes Rebecca after meeting Adele.  “My daughter got to meet the person that she loved, and that’s what I’ll always take with me for the rest of my life. Adele played with her hair, and held her hand and asked her all about Frozen. She was really lovely.”



Adele’s tour continues through mid June throughout Europe. All shows are sold out. You go girl!
