Lady Gaga Pays Tribute to Orlando Shooting Victims, Breaks Down

by at .

Lady Gaga broke down in understandable tears on Monday night.

The artist stood in solidarity alongside the grieving LGBT community at Los Angeles’ City Hall, delivering an emotional speech in tribute to the 49 victims killed over the weekend at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

Gaga, of course, is especially close to the gay, lesbian and bisexual community.

“We mourn the tragic loss of these innocent, beautiful people. Let’s all today pledge an allegiance of love to them and to their families who are suffering so deeply," the singer said.

She continued:

"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 was at this point where Gaga could not hold back her tears any longer.

"I hope you know that myself and so many are your allies," she said.

"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."
