The singer made the announcement at her gig in Miami last night (October 25)
Adele has voiced her support for Hillary Clinton in the upcoming US Presidential Election, declaring that she is “100% for” the Democratic candidate.
The Tottenham-born singer was performing in Miami last night (October 25) as part of her current world tour in support of her hugely-successful third studio album, ’25’.
As Pitchfork reports, Adele took time between songs to comment on the election, which currently sees Clinton ahead of her Republican opponent, Donald Trump, in the polls. While clarifying that she can’t vote in the upcoming election, the 28-year-old did declare her preference for who should succeed Barack Obama in the Oval Office come January.
“Don’t vote for [Trump], that’s what I’m saying,” she told the AmericanAirlines Arena crowd. According to CNN, who also report that Clinton was present at the gig, an aide for the Democrat claims Adele then said that she’s “100% for Hillary Clinton. I love her, she’s amazing,”
“I am English, but what happens in America affects me, too,” Adele continued.

Earlier today, Bruno Mars gave an insight into what it was like working with Adele in the studio. Mars, who co-wrote ‘All I Ask’ on ’25’, said Adele “walks into the studio, she’s got all this attitude, she’s a diva, she’s like, ‘I don’t want to do this. I don’t like that.'”
