    Hillary Clinton took a break from campaigning in South Florida Tuesday night to check out the Adele concert at American Airlines Arena in Miami.

    Clinton, who turns 69 Wednesday, even got an endorsement from the British singer, who discussed the presidential election and Clinton's Republican rival Donald Trump in between songs.

    "I am English but what happens in America affects me too," Adele told the crowd. "Don't vote for him. I can't vote but I am 100 percent for Hillary Clinton, I love her, she's amazing."

    Earlier Tuesday, Clinton and Trump both held rallies in Florida as they work to lockup votes ahead of the Nov. 8 election.

    Kellyanne Conway, Trump's campaign manager, referenced Clinton's appearance at the concert while defending the GOP nominee's decision to appear at the opening of his new hotel in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday. 

    "Respectfully, Hillary Clinton has time to go to an Adele concert and everyone thinks that's really cool," she told NBC's "Today" show Wednesday. "Donald Trump stops off to unveil just an incredible, stunning piece of architecture, a new first class hotel and everyone's hair is on fire. I think you see today tangible accomplishments of Donald Trump."
