Beyoncé and Janet Jackson Dedicate Music to Orlando Shooting Victims

Goddesses, they are.

Published June 15, 2016

Since the shooting in Orlando that left over 100 people dead or wounded, a good portion of Americans are doing what they can to pitch in.

Those in the music world are also doing what they can to make things a little better. Last night (June 14) during her Formation World Tour stop in Detroit, Beyoncé took a moment to reflect on those affected by Sunday’s massacre.

During her closing song “Halo,” she had everyone join her in remembering the victims. "To all of the family members who lost family members in Florida," she told the audience. She also made sure to include Christina Grimmie, a former The Voice contestant who was also gunned down in Orlando two days prior.

Janet Jackson also decided to make a tribute to Orlando. She tweeted out a link to “Shoulda Known Better,” a song from her most recent album, in dedication to those who lost their lives. “You’ll never be forgotten,” she tweeted followed by the hashtags #WeAreOrlando and #Unbreakable.

Beyoncé will begin the European leg of her tour on June 28 in Sunderland, England. She’ll then return to the United States on Sept. 7 when she performs in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Check out a little of what went down last night below.
