Top international names in the music industry have been paying tributes to victims of multiple terror attacks and killings that shook the world recently.

American actor-singer Jennifer Lopez along with Broadway artist Lin-Manuel Miranda, released a song — Love Make the World Go Round — to honour those who lost their lives during a shooting rampage at a gay night club in Orlando, Florida in June.

Not just Beyoncé, her husband, music composer Jay-Z, too, released a new song, Spiritual, after two black youngsters were shot dead by the police officers in the US.

Barbadian singer Rihanna, who had to cancel her show in Nice, France, after 84 people died in the recent attack during the city’s fireworks display, sang her 2012 hit, Diamonds, as a tribute. Performing in the French city of Lyon, RiRi said, “Tonight is the night I wish I could have experienced with my fans in Nice.”

Earlier this year, British singer Adele had dedicated her song, Make You Feel My Love, to the victims of the terrorist attack in Brussels, Belgium, that left 30 dead.
