Lady Gaga spoke at a powerful vigil on Monday to honor the victims of the Orlando tragedy.
Speakers read the names of the 49 men and women who were fatally shot, and the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles paid tribute in song. Thousands gathered at the event at L.A. City Hall, with several hundred marching afterward and chanting “One Pulse.”
“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.”
“Not only me, but everyone here, we represent the compassion and loyalty of millions of people around the world that believe in you. You are not alone.”
