Las Vegas has always been a second home for me and my family. I love this city from the bottom of my heart. Some of my most lasting memories have occurred in this great city. One year ago today the beautiful city of Las Vegas was subject to a terrible act of mindless violence.  58 people were lost that day and hundreds more had their lives forever changed. Las Vegas’ strength and resilience may have been shook but it was not nor will it ever be broken. The city rallied around those affected and stands today one year later stronger and prouder than ever before. We must remember, we must spread love, and we must never forget those we lost on that fateful day. I look forward to honouring you all this Saturday night. #VegasStronger
