Adele dedicated Make You Feel My Love to her idol Amy Winehouse as she performed in Boston on Wednesday night on what would have been the late star's 33rd birthday.

The 28-year-old singer was performing at the TD Garden arena in the US city and took a moment to remember the jazz and soul musician who tragically died in July 2011 when she was just 27.

Adele described Amy as a "genius" and the artiste, who inspired her to write her own songs, before performing an emotional rendition of the ballad.

Speaking to fans, Adele said, "I feel like I owe so much of my career to her. Her first album, Frank, that album really changed my life. I used to think she's the coolest m..........."

"Because of her I write my own songs. If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't be happening. I'm also completely happy with all of the music that she left behind because it's genius, but every day I wish I could hear a new song from her. So, tonight I want to dedicate this song to Amy Winehouse. This is Make You Feel My Love. We love you, we always will," she said.

Earlier in the day, Adele took to her Twitter account to remember the 'Rehab' singer, posting a photo of Amy smiling for the camera along with the caption "Happy Birthday Amy X".
