“She really made us and we knew she would take care of us.”
Twitter was wild. My mom texted me and said she was crying. This could only mean one thing: Yes, Adelehis Live Concert, An Audience with Adele, was broadcast on television.
There is a part of the special that captured the hearts of many, where Adele had a reunion with her English teacher from her childhood …
… And, in my mother’s words:
Even though I highly recommend watching the clip for yourself, it starts with Adele being asked – by Emma Thompson, of course – if there was anyone who inspired her when she was younger.
Adele answered without pause, calling her English teacher from when she was 12, Miss McDonald. “It was only a year, but she really brought me into literature. Like, I was always obsessed with English, and of course now I write texts. But she also did street dance – I was too scared to participate – but in the canteen they used to do this dance … She was so bloody cool. So engaged. She really cared about us and we knew she would take care of us. “
Cut to the music playing “Make You Feel My Love” – AND YUP, MISS MCDONALD WAS THERE.
Leads Adele to just burst into tears.
“I’m so proud of you,” said her former teacher, to which Adele replied, “I did not know you were coming!”
“You really changed my life,” Adele added, before shouting, “Mom! Mom, can you believe it?”
The two then share a quick reunion …
… what I also looked like:
Adele then goes to retouch her makeup, and in the process asks her friend and comedian Alan Carr to stand for a few minutes and sing a little “Make You Feel My Love.”
Anyway, if you see me crying on the subway tonight, take care of your own business.
