Having grown up on council estates with a single mother, Adele openly says she doesn't come from money and that "it's not an important part" of her life. But with her staggering £150million fortune, the Someone Like You singer has always made sure to give back to the community and help those less fortunate.
She's participated in various charity concerts, including for Comic Relief and Pride London, and regularly contributes to MusiCares, a charity for musicians in need.
And who can forget when Adele rushed to the scene of the Grenfell Tower blaze in 2017, to hug and comfort distressed residents? Two weeks after the tragedy, she dedicated her song Hometown Glory to the victims of the fire and encouraged them to donate to Grenfell United as she had done.
