Adele is mourning the death of actor Matthew Perry, who passed away at his home in Los Angeles on Saturday.  

During her recent show at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Los Angeles, the singer took time to speak about how Perry's character on 'Friends' touched her life. 

"One of my friends, Andrew, when I was 12 did the best Chandler impression," she told the crowd.

"And he would do it all the time to make us laugh. And if anyone was having a bad day or feeling low, he would just pretend to be Chandler."

Adele said she will remember him for the rest of her life. 

"I'll remember that character for the rest of my life." 

The singer and songwriter went on to commend Perry for opening up about his struggles and addictions. 

The actor spoke about his substance abuse in his book, 'Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing'. 

"He was so open with his struggles with addiction and sobriety, which I think is incredibly, incredibly brave," Adele added.

She went on to dedicate 'When We Were Young' to Perry.
