Lady Gaga was one of thousands who came out to pay heir respects at a vigil held in front of Los Anglees City Hall overnight.
The star, stripped back of all her usual eccentrics, broke down as she delivered an impassioned speech about the massacre that took place at Pulse nightclub and claimed 49 lives and injured dozens more.
As we've now witnessed the largest mass shooting in American history, I can't help but feel that this level of hatred, like all prejudicial crimes, this is an attack on humanity itself," she said, fighting back the tears. "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. And let's all today pledge an allegiance of love to them and their families who are suffering so deeply."
"They are sons and daughters; they're fathers and mothers, 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 honour those 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 around the world that believe in you. You are not alone, you are not alone."
"Tomorrow, I hope that we all race thoughtfully and loudly toward solutions but tonight, and right now, Orlando, we are united with you. And we are here to remember."
