The 49 names of those killed as a result of the mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub scrolled across a large screen, along with singer Grimmie, who was shot and killed in a separate incident in Orlando just one day earlier, as Bieber performed his song “Purpose.”
“You’ve been through a lot here, and my heart goes out to all the families. You can’t take down Orlando!” Bieber told the audience at one point during his concert, reports local NBC affiliate 9 News.
After the show, Bieber tweeted out, “Thank you for tonight. Don’t ever be afraid to be yourself.#OrlandoStrong”
