Taylor Swift has become the latest celebrity to pay tribute to the victims of the mass shooting at an Orlando, Florida gay nightclub on Sunday.

On her Instagram and Twitter accounts, the singer posted a handwritten card that included the full names of all 49 victims in alphabetical order. Along with the photo, Swift wrote to the families, “As you bury your loved ones this week, please know that there are millions of us sending you love and our deepest sympathy in the face of this unthinkable and devastating tragedy.”

 

Swift is one of a number of musicians to comment on the massacre. Earlier this week, Lady Gaga delivered a tearful speech as thousands gathered outside Los Angeles’ City Hall, while Christina Aguilera and Melissa Etheridge have both released powerful songs dedicated to the victims in Orlando.
