To her fan's delight, Adele finally kicked off her Las Vegas residency Weekends with Adele at the Caesar's Palace Colosseum in November, slated to run through March 25.

Through the power of social media, the internet was blessed with videos from the 15-time Grammy-award winner's two-hour concerts that show her interactions with the crowd, from posing with fans for selfies to having full-on conversations during the set.

While most of these antics have been humorous and in line with Adele's charming wit, a recent video captured by an audience member had many—and the singer herself—reaching for the tissues.

You can see the beautiful and emotional moment below.

A very special moment from Adele’s concert this past Friday ♥️ #adele #weekendswithadele #adelevegas #adelelive #someonelikeyou #whenwewereyoung

During Adele's performance of "When We Were Young" she walked through the audience.

Just a couple of rows behind her a man was holding his phone toward her. At one point, he looked at the phone, put his hand over his heart and then turned the screen back toward Adele.

When Adele took the stage again to sing "Someone Like You," she shared:

"This is for you, sir, who's showing me his wife on his phone."

After the song, she tearfully continued:

"When I walk through the crowd, I wish you could see what I could see. Because I know I talk to a few people every night, but then I just see little stories of people happening."
"And there was a man... He's just there, can you see him holding his phone up?"
"I think that's his wife on his phone and I don't think she's here and it just really moved me."

Wiping away her tears she said to the man:

"It looks like you're here on your own. And I'm so, so sorry."
"I'm so sorry for your loss, and I'm so sorry I didn't realize what you were showing me until I was already over there."

Addressing the audience once again, she apologized:

"Sorry, but it's like I see these little pockets of people's lives when I walk through and it's so beautiful."


Many viewers commented on the way the man seemed so happy to be experiencing the moment with the memory of his wife and the way he looked at the picture.
