Lady Gaga prays for families of Brazil nightclub victims

Lady Gaga has paid tribute to the victims of Brazil's recent nightclub fire.

231 people were killed at a club in Santa Maria after a band member reportedly lit a flare on stage, causing a fire to spread through the building.

The country has declared three days of national mourning as a result of the tragedy and Gaga took to her Twitter account to echo the feelings.

She retweeted a message that said one of her fans died in the blaze, before tweeting:

"My heart is with you Brazil."

She continued: "Sending my prayers to the families and friends who lost loved one in the fire in Brazil. I'm thinking of you today during this tragedy."

The singer then posted a photo of herself in prayer as she focused her mind on the victims' families.
