Paying tribute to the victims of devastating gun massacre in Orlando on Sunday morning, the Orlando Gay Chorus performed a beautiful rendition of Cyndi Lauper's 1980s pop ballad, "True Colours".

The Orlando Gay Chorus were on the stage at the Joy Metropolitan Community Church, a place of worship and support for LGBT+ people. The prayer vigil also heard the choir sing a version of "You'll Never Walk Alone":

Dr Rev Nancy Wilson delivered a powerful sermon to the mourners in attendance, rallying the spirits of visitors as she said: "Hate tried... But love wins."

It was an emotional night that saw an outpouring of love and grief.

Choirs around the world have also paid tribute to the lives lost over the weekend, with the London Gay Men's Chorus performing Simon and Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" on the streets of London's Soho, in a display of solidarity and support to the victims whose loss is felt globally through the LGBT+ community.
