Pop and former Disney stars Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato paid tribute to the victims of the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando at their Orlando tour date with an emotional performance. The two have just embarked on their Future Now tour together, and the gesture was very heartfelt. According to Idolator, the two invited R&B singer Andra Day to join them in a rendition of her song “Rise Up.”
“This song is incredibly inspiring, and she is incredibly inspiring,” Jonas said just before Day took the stage at Amway Center.
Behind the performers, a screen with the word ‘Orlando’ written in rainbow colors served as a backdrop. The names and ages of all 49 victims were displayed on this screen, and The Voice finalist Christina Grimmie, who was shot just a day before the nightclub shooting, was honored as well.
According to a source at TMZ, the headliners offered tickets to Sunday’s concert to Pulse nightclub employees, where they were given a private suite and meet-and-greet.
