This week marks the passing of one year since the Pulse tragedy, and Orlando pays tribute to the fallen. Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs and other community leaders and elected officials will be hosting a remembrance ceremony at Lake Eola to honor all of those that we lost on that night. Grammy award-winning recording artist Olga Tañón and Sisaundra Lewis, a former contestant on The Voice, use the strength of their singing voices to remind us of the strength of the Orlando community. The memorial reading of the 49 names might be the hardest part to hear, but the unity of our city speaks volumes in itself.

7 p.m. Monday, June 12 | Walt Disney Amphitheatre, Lake Eola Park, 195 N. Rosalind Ave. | | free
