Tony Marrero is one of the survivors of the Pulse Nightclub shooting that happened a couple of months ago and he was able to meet the artist who helped him through that traumatizing event, Katy Perry.
Tony was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and he told Ellen that Katy Perry’s new single “Rise” inspired him to not give up and keep going after he was released from the hospital after being shot 4 times. He said,“Every word in that song is just powerful. So I embraced it.”
After they talked for a few minutes Ellen surprised him by bringing out Katy Perry and Tony told her, “Your lyrics to that song helped me the day that I was in the hospital all the way to now.”
