Celebrities expressed their sorrow and condolences over the Orlando shooting this week.

Lady Gaga gave an emotional tribute at a vigil for the victims outside Los Angeles’ City Hall on Monday.

“As we have now witnessed the largest mass shooting in American history, I can’t help but feel that this level of hatred, like all prejudicial crimes, this is an attack on humanity itself. This is an attack on everyone. Tonight, I gather humbly with you as a human being in peace, in sincerity, in commitment, in solidarity, to take a real moment and mourn the tragic loss of these innocent, beautiful people,” Lady Gaga said at the vigil before reading the list of names of the lives lost.

Janet Jackson posted a tribute video for her song “Shoulda Known Better” featuring pictures of the victims combined with news footage.
