Adele Invites Fan with Autism to Sing with Her because She's Adele

[Video available to view at the link below.]

Adele's duet with this fan set fire to our hearts.

A video from a concertgoer, which was shared on YouTube, shows 12-year-old Emily Tammam, who has autism, on stage with Adele at Manchester Arena earlier this month. The artist invited Emily to sing "Someone Like You" with her and duet was equal parts heartwarming and incredible.

Watch as Emily, whose favorite singer just happens to be Adele, delicately starts of singing the hit song, while the star revs up the crowd. Adele then joins the 12-year-old later on in the song, steering her through the piece. Toward the end of the clip, Emily expertly belts out the chorus in a move that'll likely send chills down your spine.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Emily, who also has ADHD and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type 3 -- a disorder that affects connective tissue -- in addition to autism, held up a sign at the concert that read, "It is my dream to sing with Adele." After spotting the sign, the singer brought the 12-year-old, who compete in "Britain's Got Talent" back in 2014, onstage.
