Last night (June 30), Justin Bieber performed in Orlando as part of his “Purpose” tour, and dedicated the concert to the victims of the Orlando shooting, and the murdered Christina Grimmie. “I’m on your side”, Justin said to the Orlando crowd.

“You guys have been in my heart”, Bieber said at the beginning of the show. “I’ve just been thinking of the families and really feeling for them. It’s hard to be happy in a time like this, so it means a lot to see you guys out here, smiling.”

Later, when Bieber sang “Purpose”, the names of the 49 Orlando victims (and Grimmie) were projected on the screen behind him:

During the show, Bieber, also had a direct message of support for the audience:

“I’m on your side. I’m on this journey with you all. Don’t ever feel like you’re on your journey alone. I’m with you. Don’t ever be afraid to be yourself.”
