Watch Lady Gaga's tearful, powerful speech honoring Orlando victims [VIDEO]
“As we have 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,” the pop star and equal rights activist began. “This is an attack on everyone.”
Ignore voices that aim to divide us, this only leads to more violence between people. We must unite as humans, where we are all the same.— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) June 14, 2016
“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,” she continued, her powerful emotions totally palpable from the crowd. She then went on to read aloud the names and ages of each of the victims slain inside Orlando’s PULSE night club, tears streaming down her face.
The world is in peril. Today get stronger. A workout, silent time, clear your rage. Then go out and spread that strength all around you.— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) June 14, 2016
