Lady Gaga at L.A. Vigil for Orlando Victims: ‘Myself and So Many Are Your Allies’ — WATCH

Lady Gaga Orlando

At one of many vigils around the country for the victims of the massacre in Orlando which took the lives of 49 people and injured 53 others, Lady Gaga broke down delivering an emotional speech and reading the names of the victims of the senseless tragedy.

Said Gaga:

“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. This is an attack on everyone. Tonight I gather humbly with you as a human being in peace and sincerity, in commitment, in 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 sisters.”

She added:

“I will not allow my anger and outrage over this attack overshadow our need to honor 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.”
