Pop star Katy Perry offered an emotional tribute to the victims of the Manchester terror attack during a small show in London Thursday night, the video of which has since become an internet sensation.

"It was hard for you guys, I know that, it was hard for me, because we all love music," began Perry, who also offered support for Ariana Grande on Twitter, the singer whose show was targetted by ISIS affiliated terrorists on May 22 - the deadlies attack in the U.K. in twelve years.

"We're all listening to the same music. And you think about it and you think, 'That's my friend, that's my sister, that's my brother, that's my cousin, that's the person that loves music.' It's awful, it's awful. It's awful," Perry continued 

Speaking to the some 200-person crowd at Water Rats nightclub, Perry said, "And whatever you can do to help, you should."

"If you can't do anything, that's fine. But what you should do is not let them win... they can never take that part away from us ever, ever," Perry concluded before singing her hit song, "Part of me."
