Christina Grimmie's Brother Delivers Emotional Speech For Orlando Shooting Victims at Candlelight Vigil
She continued, "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."
The singer fought back tears as she passionately addressed the crowd.
"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," she said. Adding, "Lost members of the LGBT community."
She continued, "Tonight, right now, Orlando, we are united with you. And we are here to remember."
City Hall was lit in rainbow colors to represent solidarity with the LGBT community and the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles paid tribute with "True Colors." Gaga was joined by speakers who represented the Los Angeles LGBT Center, Bienestar Human Services, the Los Angeles Transgender Advisory Council and the Latino Equality Alliance.
The vigil was one of many held around the country Monday night for victims of the deadly attack.
In Manhattan, thousands crowded the streets around the famed Stonewall Inn, a gay rights landmark, where New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio spoke to the crowd.
And in Orlando, thousands gathered on the lawn of the Dr. Phillips Center downtown, the area's main performing arts venue that has become a memorial for the victims.
