On Monday, Adele visited the site of last week's Grenfell Tower fire in London, which killed at least 79 people, and afterward took a trip to the Chelsea Fire Station to meet with some of the firefighters who worked the devastating scene. "Not everyday the wonderfully grounded and caring Adele pops into Chelsea Firestation for a cup of tea and a cuddle," one of the firefighters posted on Facebook, along with photos. As Billboard notes, a slew of singers is taking part in a charity single that will benefit the victims. It's reportedly a cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Waters" that will be out Wednesday morning. (More Adele stories.)
