Adele has proven that aside from her angelic voice, she also has a good heart.
The “Hello” singer visited a seriously ill fan in Belfast, Northern Ireland as she kicked off her world tour in the country. Adele took time to visit 12-year-old Rebecca Gibney, hours before her second concert on Tuesday.

According to BBC News, Gibney has cerebral palsy and epilepsy, and is blind. Last year, the teen was given just six months to live.
Her mother, Tracy, set up a petition on Change.org after she found out Adele is scheduled to perform in Belfast to try if she could get the singer to send Rebecca a video message after her concert.
She wrote in the petition: “Rebecca listens to Adele from she gets up in the morning until her bedtime. All I am asking for is for Adele to FaceTime we Rebecca or send her a video message, it would be her dream come true, please please help for my beautiful sick little daughter.”
Adele’s manager then called Tracy on Tuesday afternoon to say they would visit their home in an hour.
“It’s amazing. I’ll never forget it. And I do know that when Rebecca passes away she did get her dream come true. It’s made me feel like I’m the best mummy in the world which I never felt. Adele told me I was the best mummy in the world too,” Mrs. Gibney told BBC.
She expressed how gratitude they were to Adele and shared some photos of the singer sitting beside Rebecca.
Adele also invited Tracy and her other daughter to Tuesday’s concert as her guests.
News of Adele’s act of kindness for a fan has since spread across the country. Deputy first minister of Northern Ireland Martin McGuinness tweeted: “Many thanks @Adele, [you’re] a STAR In more ways than 1. #Rebecca xo.”
Niall Ó Donnghaile, the former lord mayor of Belfast, also tweeted that Adele’s visit made”Rebecca and Tracy’s year!!”
On her first day of concert tour in Belfast, the songstress also helped a female fan, named Jenny, to propose to her boyfriend. Adele invited Jenny to join her onstage at the SSE Arena in Belfast on Monday to proposed to Neil, who at first hesitated to say yes. Eventually, he accepted his girlfriend’s marriage proposal. To make things even better, Adele, who recently revealed that her comeback album “25″ was almost a flop, invited herself to the ceremony.
