Lady Gaga Reads Tearful Speech At Vigil for Orlando Shooting Victims (VIDEO)
Lady Gaga fought back tears on Monday at a vigil for the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando. The event, held in Los Angeles, was attended by thousands.
Gaga’s speech was delivered at the steps of City Hall, as she read off the names of the victims of what was, tragically, the worst mass shooting in American history. Of the victims, Gaga declared, “Let’s all today pledge an allegiance of love to them and to their families who are suffering so deeply. They are sons and daughters. They were 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 honor those who are grieving truly for their lost ones; lost members of the LGBT community.”
It’s a beautiful, devastating speech, and it’s clear to see how deeply Lady Gaga’s heart breaks over this. You can watch the video of her emotional speech below:
