The Tony Awards are dedicating Sunday’s ceremony to the friends and family of those killed and wounded in the Orlando mass shooting, which left at least 50 people dead and 53 injured after a gunman opened fire in a gay nightclub early Sunday morning.

“Our hearts are heavy for the unimaginable tragedy that happened last night in Orlando,” the official Tony Awards Twitter account posted Sunday morning. “Our thoughts are with the families and friends of those affected. The Tony Awards dedicate tonight’s ceremony to them.” 

This is the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, and officials are looking into it as a possible act of domestic terrorism.

The Tony Awards will go on as planned Sunday night with James Corden as host. The show begins at 8 p.m. on CBS.
