Twenty-six crosses stand in a field on the edge of town to honor the 26 victims killed at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs on Nov. 6, 2017 in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

The country continues to mourn the deaths of 26 after a gunman opened fire on a church just outside of San Antonio, Texas, Sunday, Nov. 5. According to a report from The Houston Chroniclethe 26-year-old gunman approached the church dressed all in black about 20 minutes after the service was scheduled to begin. He was found dead in his car about 10 miles from the scene of the crime. Those killed included a pregnant woman and the pastor's 14-year-old daughter.

It's harrowing news that's even harder to swallow in the wake of so many deadly shootings in 2017. It can be hard to have the important conversations that follow these instances of violence and terrorism. Artists and musicians across genres have taken the lead on social media, reminding their followers to face harsh realities. Some advocate for stricter gun laws, while other focus on relief for those effected.

Here's what some of the biggest stars in dance music recently had to say.
