Music legend Celine Dion has pledged to donate proceeds from her concert at the Colosseum in Caesars Palace to the bereaved families of the Las Vegas massacre.
The singer made an emotional return to the stage on Tuesday in Las Vegas, days after the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history hit people at the 91 Harvest country music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada.
She addressed the crowd, revealing that proceeds from the night would go to the victims of the October 1 shooting and their families.
“Tonight is very different. After Sunday night’s incredibly tragic event, all of us here find ourselves asking a similar question. For you, it’s, ‘Do we still go to Celine’s show on Tuesday night, only two days after the nightmare?’ For me, it’s, ‘Can I still do my show? Should I still do my show only two days after the nightmare?’ These are difficult questions” she said.
Celine Dion said that she decided to go on with the performance to support the victims and families of the deadly shootings.
“On Sunday, we lost too many beautiful, innocent souls and so many are still suffering. But tonight, we are going to let these families know that we are supporting them and that we will help them through their tragic loss. They are going to need a lot of love, a ton of emotional support, as well as a great deal of financial aid. I want you to know that you have made the right choice in being here tonight,” she added
The shooter killed 58 people and left 565 others injured.
