Thousands of mourners gathered at L.A.’s City Hall to honor those killed in the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.

“I can’t help but feel that this level of hatred, like all prejudicial crimes, this is an attack on humanity itself,” Gaga said as she fought back tears, said the The Hollywood Reporter. “This is an attack on everyone. Tonight I gather humbly with you, as a human being, in peace and sincerity, in commitment and solidarity, to take a real moment and mourn the tragic loss of these innocent, beautiful people.”

“I will not allow my anger and outrage over this attack to overshadow our need to honor those who are grieving truly for their lost ones, lost members of the LGBT community,” she continued. “Tonight, right now, Orlando, we are united with you. And we are here to remember.”

Previously, Gaga expresses her sadness and gave prayers for the families of the victims on Twitter.
