Demi Lovato continues to make us proud.

At last night's kickoff performance of the Tell Me You Love Me tour in San Diego, the sexually fluid 25-year-old invited six of the Parkland shooting survivors, Julius Castillo, Mackenzie Marie Chapman, Samantha Megan Deitsch, Maia Hebron, Eden Hebron, and Sarah Stricker, on stage.

"On February 14, one of the worst mass shootings in American history took place," she told the crowd, reports INTO. "These students were in school that day. Please welcome them to the stage."

The pop star added, "It has nothing to do with politics. It’s about healing. It was how can we help these students heal from what they’ve been through? These students that came here today and shared their stories are so incredibly brave and courageous and they really are warriors in my eyes."

Lovato has been a longtime advocate for social issues, the LGBT community, and people whose voices haven't been heard. During the show, fans were asked to text donations to the CAST, a foundation dedicated to bringing attention to mental health issues.
