As if Adele fans needed more emotion to deal with right now.
The British singer cried hard after she was surprised on stage by her childhood English teacher during her “An Audience With Adele” concert special, which was televised on ITV in the UK over the weekend.
Like her latest American special, the taped concert to promote her new album, “30”, was performed to an audience of A-lists. Instead of being interviewed by Oprah Winfrey, this time Adele was questioned by members of her celebrity guest list. This included British actress icon Emma Thompson, who asked the singer if she had anyone who inspired and supported her when she was younger.
“Yes, I had a teacher at Chestnut Grove [Academy] who taught me English. It was Miss McDonald, ”said the London-born star without hesitation.
She said they had not kept in touch after the teacher went to eighth grade, but “she really got me into literature.”
“Like, I’ve always been obsessed with English, and now, of course, I write lyrics,” she added.
“She was so damn cool, so engaging, and she really made us worry, and we knew she loved us and stuff like that. She used to have all these gold bracelets and gold rings. She was bloody cool and so relatable. and sympathetic that I was really looking forward to my English lessons. ”
That was when Thompson announced that Miss McDonald was present and she went up to the stage to see her former student. After a tearful embrace, the two were given a brief overhaul.
“Thank you for remembering me,” McDonald told Adele.
“No, you really, you really changed my life. Mom! Mom, can you believe it?” Adele told McDonald if two children were also in the audience.
“I have not seen you since I was 12,” she added. “I still have all my books, you know? I have all my books from when you were my teacher.”
