During a concert in Stockholm, Madonna honored the victims of the terrorist attacks in Paris, and shed tears.

Madonna stopped Saturday night's show in Stockholm, Sweden, and asked the huge crowd to join her in a moment of silence for the victims of Friday's terrorist attacks in Paris. A video uploaded to YouTube by the singer's manager shows her touching tribute -- a heartfelt speech and a toned down version of Like A Prayer.

"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," Madonna told her fans, her voice breaking:

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

Terrorists attacked multiple targets in Paris on Friday night killing at least 129 people and injuring more than 350. It was the deadliest attack in France since World War II.

"Tonight's show was difficult but there was so much love in this arena it made me feel like we were turning darkness into light," Madonna wrote on Facebook following the perfomance.
