Tony Marrero survived the Orlando nightclub shooting that took 49 lives back in June. He was invited to the Ellen DeGeneres Show and received a huge surprise when Ellen introduced him to Katy Perry.
Tony had been listening to Katy’s music, specifically her new single “Rise”, to help him through the shock and devastating aftermath of the shooting. He told Katy:
“I just want to say thank you for everything you do. Your lyrics to that song helped me from the day that I was in the hospital all the way to now. You’re amazing.”
Katy was overwhelmed…and had ANOTHER surprise in store for him:
Ellen joined in on the generosity and treated Tony to a private screening of Finding Dory and donated $25 thousand dollars to the victims of Pulse.
