Miley Cyrus is performing on The Tonight Show every night this week and, on Monday night, she performed a song she hasn't sung in years in honor of the victims of the Las Vegas shooting: "The Climb."
On Instagram, Miley explained the song choice in an emotional post.
"In honor of the lives lost , injured and affected by the tragic shooting in Vegas, @fallontonight & I dedicated this show to not only mourning this horrific event but using this platform to encourage unity , peace & hopefulness!" she wrote. "So we started this week off with a song I haven't performed in years ... #TheClimb . These words mean more now to me than ever ... " Keep The Faith" ..... Sending love to ALL! Enjoy the show tonight & #MileyWeek .... hope we can make you smile even thru so much pain 💛"
That wasn't the only moment in the show the singer took to address the devastating mass shooting that left 58 dead and hundreds injured. Miley opened the show with a cover of Dido's "No Freedom," accompanied by Adam Sandler on guitar.
