Katy Perry Surprises Pulse Nightclub Survivor On Ellen

Katy Perry

(Radio.com) Ellen DeGeneres had one powerful moment for a Pulse Nightclub survivor on her show last Thursday (September 8). Tony Marrero, who survived the June massacre at the Orlando nightclub, turned to Katy Perry's single "Rise" to help him recover.

"Have you met Katy yet?" DeGeneres asked him. "You wanna meet Katy?" What followed was an emotional introduction. The moment was designed to be a momentous one for Marrero, but it ended up impacting Perry as well.

As soon as he turned his head to see Perry walking toward him, Marrero began tearing up, which started Perry crying as well. "I'm like shaking right now," she admitted as she sat down. "We're both shaking. We're both electrified by each other and so inspired." Read more here.
