Fans screaming with Justin Bieber fever paused briefly while Biebs took time to honor the Pulse victims at his Orlando concert last night.

During the show, Justin Bieber offered a sincere and solemn tribute to the Pulse nightclub victims. As he sang "Purpose," the title track from his latest album, the names of the victims appeared on the screen behind him. 

Bieber also included the name of The Voice star and singer Christina Grimmie, who was shot after her Orlando concert, just a day before the Pulse tragedy.
