At his show in Orlando last night, Justin Bieber performed his song “Purpose”, the track his album and the tour are named for, as names of the 49 Orlando Pulse nightclub victims, as well as that of Christina Grimmie, scrolled up a massive LED screen. After sitting intimately with his audience, Bieber walked toward the screen staring up at the names.
One fan account quoted the singer as telling his Orlando audience, “You’ve been through a lot here, and my heart goes out to all the families. You can’t take down Orlando!”
Bieber also posted a photo of his set with the words #ORLANDOSTRONG to Twitter, saying, “Thank you for tonight. Don’t ever be afraid to be yourself.
