Justin Bieber honored the 49 lives lost in the Pulse nightclub shooting in a tribute during his Orlando tour stop on Thursday.

Bieber performed his song “Purpose” while the names of the Orlando victims scrolled across a large screen. Christina Grimmie, “The Voice” contestant who was shot and killed in Orlando one day prior to the Pulse massacre, was also included in the list.

9news NBC reports Bieber told the audience “You’ve been through a lot here, and my heart goes out to all the families. You can’t take down Orlando!” during the tribute.

Following the performance, Bieber tweeted a picture of the screen from his concert reading “#OrlandoStrong.”
