Madonna cries onstage as she pays tribute to Paris victims

Los Angeles, November 16: Pop diva Madonna broke down in tears when she stopped her Stockholm, Sweden, concert to honour the victims of recent terrorist attacks in Paris.

"It's been very hard for me to get through this show up to this point and not forget about what happened last night, so I need to take this moment to acknowledge the tragedy, the tragic killings, assassinations and the senseless endings of precious 
life that occurred last night in Paris," the pop star (57) said.

"Why am I up here dancing and having fun when people are crying over the loss of their loved ones. " 

She continued, "However, that is exactly what these people want to do. They want to shut us up. They want to silence us.

And we won't let them. We will never let them! "Because there is power in unity and I do believe that as much chaos and pain and senseless violence and terrorism that occurs around this world not just in Paris as much as that does occur, there is more goodness in this world. We are here to prove it." 

Before playing an acoustic version of "Like a Prayer," a teary-eyed Madonna declared that "only love will change the world," and asked the audience to take a moment of silence to pay tribute to the victims of the attacks.
