The 'On The Run II' couple payed their respects on stage...
Beyonce and JAY-Z reduced fans to tears during their latest London performance, following a heartfelt tribute to the victims of Grenfell tower.
The Hip-Hop power couple stopped their show to dedicate a special performance of JAY-Z’s song ‘Forever Young’ for the 72 people killed in the disaster a year ago.
Beyonce and JAY-Z both wore green heart badges from the Justice4Grenfell campaign as they performed.
Watch the footage below:
The pair ‘floated’ over the crowd on a moving stage as emotional fans flashed their phone lights in the air and sang along.
Following the performance, people took to Twitter to express their emotion at Beyonce and JAY-Z showing support for victims of the blaze.
We are grateful that Jay Z and Beyonce dedicated their last song to Grenfell tonight, they said their thoughts were with the families & survivors. We are glad they wore the green heart badges that we sent over! Thank you 💚#Justice4Grenfell @grenfellspeaks— Justice4Grenfell (@officialJ4G) June 15, 2018
