On Monday, the nation struggled to come to terms with the unspeakably tragic Las Vegas shooting. CNN reports that the horrific event left 59 people dead and at least 527 people injured — and is being called the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
Amid the outpouring of grief and anger, celebrities attempted to bring some solace to their fans, followers, and strangers alike. Here's how four famous faces tried to bring a glimmer of comfort to a grieving nation.
1. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga turned to meditation to help her through the disorienting day. Through social media, the Joanne singer invited her fans to join her in a group healing session. "4 anyone who'd like to join, I'm doing a 20 minute moment of meditation/silence/prayer on my InstagramLive for calming of the [world]," she wrote, sharing a simple image of the peace-sign tattoo that adorns her wrist. Gaga even shared her personal mantras with fans, explaining that she uses phrases such as "I am calm" and "I am light" to quiet her mind during meditation.
The singer also used her huge platform to spread more logistical information, such as the hotline those looking for loved ones could call.
2. Miley Cyrus & Adam Sandler
For her October 2 appearance on Jimmy Fallon, Miley Cyrus sang a song with a powerful message of strength. "So we started this week off with a song I haven't performed in years ... #TheClimb . These words mean more now to me than ever ... " Keep The Faith" ..... Sending love to ALL!"
The singer also teamed up with Adam Sandler, who joined her in a musical tribute to those who lost their lives. While Sandler played guitar, Cyrus sang the haunting lyrics to Dido's 2013 song "No Freedom." Both performers wore black.
3. Taylor Swift
After learning that one of the officers from the Los Angeles Foothill Community Police Station had been shot, Taylor Swift sent several floral arrangements to the station. Sometimes, it really is the simple things. "Beautiful flowers can bring a smile to anyone’s face. Much respect," an officer wrote to caption a photo that showcased one of the smaller arrangements.
