Rihanna is spreading some love to the people of Nice after the attack in the city last week. A man drove a truck through the city and killed 84 people; three hundred more were injured as well on the fateful day (July 14).
During her latest stop in Parc Olympique Lyonnais in Lyon on Tuesday (July 19), RiRi dedicated a part of her performance to the victims of the attack. “This next song I want to dedicate to the people of Nice who suffered. People who have been traumatized, victims and their families,” she said before performing her song, “Diamonds” as the stage was lit with the colors of France’s flag — red, white and blue.
RiRi had to cancel her show in France when the attack happened. Afterwards, she shared a touching message on Instagram. “Due to the tragic events in #Nice, my concert scheduled for tomorrow July 15 at Allianz Stadium will not be going ahead as planned,” she said. “Our thoughts are with the victims and their families.”
As for her show in Lyon, it was clear that the pop singer was moved by the crowd with her Instagram message for them. #LYON I’m so fortunate to have had this experience with you tonight!!!” it read. “Y’all are incredibly dedicated and I cherish each of you.”
