The concert was set to take place on Easter Sunday, which also happens to be Mariah's 46th birthday.

The "Hero" songstress issued the following statement on Twitter and Instagram:

"I love my fans in Brussels and at this time I am being advised to cancel my show for the safety of my fans, my band, crew and everyone involved with the tour.

"I hope to see you soon and send my prayers and eternal love, laughter and light to my Lambs."

While some fans expressed anger and disappointment, most were supportive of her decision.

"You are letting the terrorists win!" wrote one fan via Twitter.

"You're doing the right thing. Safety first. Love you," tweeted another.

During a concert in London earlier this week, AdeleĀ dedicated an emotional performance of "Make You Feel My Love" to the terror victims in Brussels.

Audience members waved their phone lights in the air as they sang along with her.

"I don't think I've ever actually been so moved in my life at one of my shows," Adele said following the performance.

Mariah is currently in the midst of her Sweet Sweet Fantasy European Tour and will take the stage in Denmark on Tuesday.
