Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato paid tribute to the victims of the Pulse nightclub tragedy during their Future Now tour stop in Orlando on Saturday.

According to Idolator, the headliners invited R&B singer Andra Day to accompany them in a rendition of her song “Rise Up,” which she previously dedicated to the shooting victims at this year’s Austin City Limits.

“This song is incredibly inspiring, and she is incredibly inspiring,” Jonas said before Day took the stage at Amway Center.

During the trio’s emotional performance, a screen with “Orlando” written in rainbow colors was featured in the backdrop. The names and ages of all 49 victims scrolled through the screen. The Voice finalist Christina Grimmie, who was fatally shot in Orlando a day before the Pulse tragedy, was also honored during the song.

According to TMZ, Jonas and Lovato also presented Pulse nightclub employees with tickets to Saturday's concert, where they were treated to private suite as well as a meet-and-greet.

The tribute performance occurred only two days after Justin Bieber honored the Pulse victims during his Purpose tour stop in Orlando. He, too, memorialized the names of all 49 victims, as well as Grimmie, while playing a stripped down version of his song "Purpose." Other artists, such as Adele and Beyoncé, have also carried out emotional tributes for those lost in the tragic shooting.
