During her performance on Saturday (November 26), Adele paid tribute to the late mother of her friend Raven Varona by dedicating the poignant 2008 song “Make You Feel My Love” to her.
After the run of Las Vegas performances began last weekend, Raven—the official photographer for Adele's residency—lost her mother, Leigh.
The Sun reports that Adele interrupted her performance to pay tribute to Raven’s mother, “I would really appreciate it if you could all put on your torches on your phone and shine them like stars so I know her mum can see us,” Adele told the audience.
A source said, 'Family is a massive thing for Adele, and she was keen to make it clear that she (Raven) could take all the time she needed away before returning to work. The passing has hit them both hard.'
