Beyoncé has become the latest celebrity to pay tribute to the victims of the Orlando shootings, by dedicating a performance to them at her latest ‘Formation’ tour show.

The singer was performing in Detroit, when she took a moment to stop and share her condolences following the mass shooting, which left 49 dead.

Before performing ‘Halo’, she told the crowd: “This is a song about love. This is to all the family members that had family that lost their lives in Florida.”

A number of other stars have paid tribute to the victims, and shown their support for the LGBT community, since the weekend’s tragic events.

Adele was one of the first to share her thoughts, and broke down in tears while on-stage in Antwerp on Sunday (12 June), and on the same evening, James Corden opened the Tony Awards with a monologue that focussed on the shooting.

Lady Gaga also struggled to contain her emotions, when she read the victims’ names out at a Los Angeles vigil, where she also delivered a stirring speech.
