The 'Rolling In The Deep' star calls the US singer's record "stunning" in heartfelt Twitter message.

Adele is the latest big star name to offer a show of support to US artist Frank Ocean – who recently opened up about his sexuality.

The 'Someone Like You' star took to her Twitter account to post a message where she called the singer "special" and praised his debut studio album 'Channel Orange'.

She tweeted: "Frank Ocean your so so special. Congratulations on such a STUNNING album x"

The singer-songwriter penned an open letter on his Tumblr account earlier this month where he revealed his first love was a man.

Musicians from around the world have been showing support to the star including Beyonce who hailed him as "fearless" and "brave".

The US star, who has wrote tracks with the likes of Justin Bieber and John Legend in the past, pushed the release of his album forward – which has caused retailer Target to reveal that they will not be stocking it.

Reports suggested the decision came from the 'Swim Good' singer's sexuality revelation – something which the company has since denied.

Meanwhile, Adele is preparing for the birth of her first child with boyfriend Simon Konecki.

The Grammy Award winning star announced the news last month and is rumoured to welcome her baby in September.
