Rita Ora joins effort for Grenfell Tower residents while fans say Adele was at the scene

In a moving and emotional move, Adele visited those affected by the tragic apartment tower fire in London to offer her support and give out hugs to people.

12 people are known to have died after fire engulfed Grenfell Tower in White City after 1am - but Scotland Yard expects the death toll to rise and some claim the actual number could be over 50.

They wrote: "Adele near the #Grenfell Tower in an Abaya". The singer made trends in the social media, and a lot of them praised the star for what she did.

Adele, one of the biggest selling artists in the world, did not announce her attendance or make any public statement. "My heart goes out to everyone affected by this horrific tragedy in west London".

Lots of her fans were grateful for her presence on the vigil.

Afghan soldier wounds 7 American soldiers
An Afghan soldier is alleged to have fired inside a military compound in northern Afghanistan and injured about seven U.S. troops. The statement read that the incident was under investigation and more details would be provided when available.

Documenting her good deed through Instagram stories, the singer can be seen sifting through bin bags of clothes and chatting to locals in organising the items donated to the victims of the fire who lost their homes. Apparently, most of her fans now considered her a woman with a handsome soul.

Other stars have also been hugely supportive after the tragic incident this week.

Posting on Instagram earlier in the day, Rita recalled the tower in happier times. The residents of the tower had reportedly sent repeated warnings to the building mangers about the risk of a fire, despite the tower, which was built in 1974, undergoing recent refurbishments (which some have suggested contributed to how quickly the blaze spread). A further 69 were injured, with 18 in a critical condition.

Right now, all these victims are treated in more than six hospitals in London.
