Beyonce gig tribute after gun massacre.

Byline: MIRROR REPORTER

BEYONCE rounded off the first leg of her Formation world tour by paying tribute to the victims of the Orlando shooting massacre.

The star remembered those who lost their lives in Florida - and an apparent reference to The Voice singer Christina Grimmie who was blasted to death at the weekend - as she sang Halo.

The 34-year-old told crowds in Detroit: "This is a song about love.

"This is to all the family members who lost family members in Florida."

Omar Mateen, who was previously named on a terrorist watch list, shot dead 49 people at a gay nightclub in the deadliest mass shooting in US history.

Christina, 22, was shot dead by 27-year-old Kevin James Loibl on Friday while meeting fans after a performance.
