Social action organization Global Citizen somehow just made Adele’s hit song “Hello” even better
In a new video published this February, Global Citizen re-imagines Adele’s “Hello” as a call to Congress to protest President Drumpf’s executive orders. The video features an Adele look-a-like wearing a fur coat belting out tunes with the wind in her hair, singing into a phone … the lyrics are just a bit different.
“Hello, it’s me. I was wondering if you had some time to support refugees,” the woman sings into a flip phone.
“We can go over everything. Like how they aren’t terrorists, they’re only frightened folks in need.”
The chorus is possibly the best part
“Hello from the other side! If I have to, I’ll call a thousand times! Til you listen to us, we’ll never leave you alone. But when I call Paul Ryan, he never seems to be home.”
Global Citizen is a social action platform for a global generation that aims to solve the world’s biggest challenges.
On our platform you can learn about issues, take action on what matters most, and join a community committed to social change. We believe we can end extreme poverty because of the collective actions of Global Citizens across the world.
‘Don’t vote for him,’ the singer tells the audience
By: GERRAD HALL
Hillary Clinton has no shortage of singing celebrity supporters – Jay Z, Demi Lovato, Elton John, Katy Perry, among them.
Now she can add Adele to that list.
At the British singer’s Tuesday night concert, October 24, in Miami, where Clinton was in attendance and reportedly celebrating on the eve of her 69th birthday, Adele addressed the upcoming election and urged the audience,
“Don’t vote for him,” referring, of course, to Clinton’s opponent, Donald Trump.
“I am English, but what happens in America affects me too,” she told the crowd at the American Airlines Arena.
“I am 100 percent for Hillary Clinton. I love her, she’s amazing.”
The Genting Arena, host to large music concerts, is part of the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) complex located in Birmingham, England.
The 16,000 capacity Genting Arena was the largest multi-purpose arena in the UK when opening in 1980 as “The NEC Arena” and is still a major popular venue for many large, international touring acts.
Together, the NEC and the Genting Arena host over 3 million visitors each year.
~Adele Sings ‘All I Ask’ A Cappella After Sound Failure at Concert~
Proving that she’s a true professional with the voice better than all your faves, Adele powered through her performance of “All I Ask” like a champ on Saturday (April 2, 2016) in Birmingham, England after the speakers abruptly cut out.
Around two minutes into her song, sound for her microphone and piano went out and forced the 28-year-old to sing a cappella in front of the sold out crowd. Without missing a beat, the songstress went on – joined by the audience singing along – to finish the song.
After the performance, Adele revealed that she had no idea that her show had suffered a technical difficulty.
“Why did you all start cheering mid-way through. It scared the life out of me. I thought there was a streaker on stage. What was that?” Adele asked the crowd. “The sound went off? The PA fucking cut off?
Well, it didn’t cut off in my ears. I could hear myself.”
She added about lip syncing claims,
“Tell them I wasn’t miming. They might think I was miming, I wasn’t miming.

Adele Dedicates Show To Orlando Pulse club and The LGBT community and sings Rumour Has It.
‘I’m really moved’
Adele breaks down in tears as she dedicates her show to the 49 victims of the Orlando shooting tragedy
In an emotional speech at the Sportpaleis Arena in Antwerp, Belgium, on Sunday evening, the 27-year-old singer said she was ‘really moved’ by the tragedy and described the LGBT community as her ‘soulmates’.
Omar Mateen killed 49 innocent people and injured 53 more after he opened fire inside Pulse nightclub in Florida, before being shot dead by police, early on Sunday morning.
Visibly moved by the shocking incident, the star said: ‘I’d like to start tonight by dedicating this entire show to everybody in Orlando, and at Pulse Nightclub last night.
‘The LGBTQI’ community … they’re like my soulmates, since I was really young, so I’m really moved by it,’ she added.
Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, MBE, (born 5 May 1988) is an English singer and songwriter. Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year.
In 2007, she received the Brit Awards “Critics’ Choice” award and won the BBC Sound of 2008 poll.
Her debut album, 19, was released in 2008 to commercial and critical success. It is certified seven times platinum in the UK, and double platinum in the US. An appearance she made on Saturday Night Live in late 2008 boosted her career in the US. At the 51st Annual Grammy Awards in 2009, Adele received the awards for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
Adele released her second studio album, 21, in early 2011. The album was well received critically and surpassed the success of her debut, earning the singer numerous awards in 2012, including a record-tying six Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year; two Brit Awards, including British Album of the Year, and three American Music Awards. The album has been certified 16 times platinum in the UK, and is the fourth best-selling album in the UK of all time. In the US it has held the top position longer than any album since 1985, and is certified Diamond.
The album has sold 31 million copies worldwide.

The success of 21 earned Adele numerous mentions in the Guinness Book of World Records.
She is the first woman in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 to have three simultaneous top 10 singles as a lead artist, and the first female artist to simultaneously have two albums in the top five of the Billboard 200 and two singles in the top five of the Billboard Hot 100. 21 is the longest-running number one album by a female solo artist in the history of the UK and US Album Charts.
In 2012, she released “Skyfall“, which she wrote and recorded for the James Bond film of the same name. The song won an Academy Award, a Grammy Award, and a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song.
After taking a three-year break, Adele released her third studio album, 25, in 2015. It became the year’s best-selling album and broke first week sales records in the UK and US. The lead single, “Hello“, became the first song in the US to sell over one million digital copies within a week of its release.
In 2011 and 2012, Billboard named Adele Artist of the Year. In 2012, she was listed at number five on VH1’s 100 Greatest Women in Music.
Adele’s comeback album “25″ sold a record-breaking 3.38 million copies in its first week on sale in the US, according to Nielsen Music data.
The British star notched up the largest single sales week for an album since Nielsen began monitoring sales in 1991.
“25” released on 20 November also became the first album to sell more than three million copies in a week.
In Britain, “25” similarly broke records for the highest number of albums sold in a single week of the UK charts.
The album shifted more than 800,000 copies in its first week of release in the UK – more copies than the next 86 albums in the charts combined.
In the US, “25” is already the biggest selling album of 2015, surpassing the 1.8 million copies sold of Taylor Swift’s 1989.
(… and these numbers have increased with time … )
Adele, who has been out of the limelight since winning an Oscar for the Bond theme tune Skyfall in 2013, recently announced her first tour since 2011, playing in arenas across Europe from next February.
Her last tour ended prematurely due to the discovery of a hemorrhage on her vocal cord, which required surgery.
