Rihanna remembered the victims of the terror attack in Nice during her Tuesday night concert in Lyon, France.

The Barbadian singer-songwriter sang her 2012 hit “Diamonds” as a tribute to the 84 people, some of whom were children, who perished last July 14, a day before her concert in Allianz Riviera Stadium.

The “This is What You Came For” artist was in Nice during the attack but was hurriedly hauled off the French Riviera as her concert was cancelled for security reasons.

In Lyon, Rihanna urged the concert crowd to light up their cell phones and flash lights as she sang “Diamonds.

“This next song, I’m going to dedicate to the people in Nice who have suffered, the people who have been traumatized, the victims and their families,” she told the audience.

The Bastille Day attack on the famed Promenade des Anglais also left several hundreds wounded, some of whom remains in critical care as of press time.

“I want you to help me light this building up with some light,” the singer said. Then the crowd appeared like a black canvass with countless of diamonds sparkling as Rihanna sang.

Rihanna’s July 15 concert in Nice was part of the European leg of her Anti World Tour. As her Anti World Tour continues, the “Umbrella” singer is set to perform next in Lille on July 23, and in Paris on July 30.

Rihanna will end her Eurpean tour with a concert in Chelmsford, England on Aug. 21. She will then go back to Philadelphia on Sep. 3, before ending the world tour with a Nov. 27 concert in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
