Lady Gaga couldn’t contain her emotions and broke down to tears while reading the names of the Orlando nightclub shooting victims during a vigil in Los Angeles on Sunday.
Lady Gaga said in her speech:
“I can’t help but feel that this level of hatred, like all prejudicial crimes, this is an attack on humanity itself. This is an attack on everyone.
Tonight I gather humbly with you, as a human being, in peace and sincerity, in commitment and solidarity, to take a real moment and mourn the tragic loss of these innocent, beautiful people.
Let’s all today pledge and a legions of love to them and families who are suffering so deeply. They sons and daughter, they are all our brothers and our sisters.
But tonight, I will not allow my anger and outrage over this attack to overshadow our need to honor who are grieving truly for their lost ones, lost members of the LGBT community.
I hope you know that myself and so many are your allies. Not only me, but everyone here, we represent the compassion and the loyalty of millions of people who believe in you. You are not alone.
Tonight, right now, Orlando, we are united with you. And we are here to remember.”
