Justin Bieber Just Honored The Orlando Shooting Victims In An Amazing Way
Justin Bieber's tribute to the victims of the Orlando shooting was perfect.
Weeks after the horrific attack at Pulse nightclub that left 49 people dead and another 53 wounded, the 22-year-old's Purpose tour made a stop at the Amway Center in Orlando, just two miles from the scene of the shooting.
During the concert, Bieber paid a touching tribute to the victims of the attack by scrolling their names up on the screen by the stage while singing “Purpose.” He ended the song by standing up and facing the names directly during the words,
Thinking my journey's come to an end Sending out a farewell to my friends, forever peace Ask you to forgive me for my sins, oh would you please? I'm more than grateful for the time we spent, my spirit's at ease
Singer Christina Grimmie, who was killed in a separate Orlando shooting a day before the Pulse attack, was also acknowledged at the end of the scroll.
Bieber has clearly been planning this tribute for a while, as he responded to fans shortly after the shooting in June saying he would not be canceling the tour's Orlando concert.
The Purpose tour stops in Miami over the weekend before heading to North Carolina on July 6.
