Adele began to get emotional when talking about her teacher McDonald, who taught her the subject of English, (Language and Literature in Spain) for a year.
“She left when I was in eighth grade. She was only there for a year, but it made me love literature. I’ve always been obsessed with English and obviously now I write my lyrics. But she also did street dancing, and it was so fucking cool “, he counted to the present assistants. She went on to rave about her childhood teacher: “She was so amazing. She made us care and we knew she cared about us. She used to wear a lot of gold bracelets and wore sequins. So fucking cool. You could relate to she and I really lived waiting for the English classes to come. “
At that moment, Thomson, followed the singer’s roll and anticipated the moment of the night: “It is quite strange, in fact it is funny …” And Adele when looking at the stage could not believe the surprise: Miss McDonald was there among those present. “Is he here? He’s here tonight!” She said excitedly as she watched her go up on stage.
