Beyonce Salutes Sterling and Castile in Concert

Beyonce stopped her concert in Scotland for a moment of silence in honor of the most recent alleged victims of police brutality ... before launching into her song, "Freedom."

She told the crowd in Glasgow, "Please join me in a moment of silence to acknowledge the lives of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile." The screen behind her had the names of dozens of other victims.

Her powerful tribute came several hours before the violence erupted in Dallas Thursday night.
