The horrific shooting incident that recently took place in Orlando no doubt affected many around the world. Beyoncé recently shared her grief over the massacre with her fans on Instagram, with a picture of a rainbow, floral peace sign and the caption, “Condolences and prayers to Orlando.”
During her Formation Tour stop in Detroit on Tuesday night [June 14], she took a moment to remember the families affected by the tragic shooting.
Beyoncé usually closes her show with her track “Halo” but last night she added speaking to the audience and dedicated the song to those people currently grieving a lost loved one. “This is a song about love,” she told the audience. “This is to all the family members who lost family members in Florida.”
Earlier this week, the singer helped raise over $82,000 for the victims of the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. Beyoncé’s BeyGOOD Organization and Parkwood Entertainment company raised the money by giving fans the option to donate to the cause when buying their tickets to the Formation tour. Parkwood also awarded 14 local students selected by their high school principals and faculty with gifts to help with their college expenses. Watch the heartfelt clips below.
