Rachel Platten to Perform Orlando Tribute at Logo Trailblazer Honors: Exclusive
The massacre at Orlando's Pulse gay nightclub on June 11 resulted in 49 dead and 53 injured -- the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. Since then, many artists have paid tribute to the victims through music, including Melissa Etheridge, Keith Urban, Queen and dozens of Broadway stars.
For the Logo tribute, Platten will perform “Stand by You” and her breakthrough hit “Fight Song,” which has served as a rallying cry around many causes, from battling cancer to speaking out about LGBT issues.
During LGBT Pride month, the Trailblazer Honors sheds light on pioneers fighting for equality in the LGBT community. This year’s event is set to honor Orlando as a part of Logo’s "We Are Orlando"-themed programming. The event will also include actress Emma Stone paying tribute to Billie Jean King, plus honoree Harvey Fierstein, along with other performances.
The Trailblazer Honors air Saturday, June 25, at 8 p.m. ET on VH1 and Logo.
