It's been over six years since Miley Cyrus last performed her 2009 hit 'The Climb,' but last night she belted out the track in honour of the Las Vegas victims.

Appearing on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,' Cyrus performed two tributes to the shooting victims.

"This morning we woke up to another senseless shooting — this time in Las Vegas," Fallon said to the audience. "In a face of tragedies and acts of terror, we need to remember that good still exists in this world. We're here to entertain you tonight, and that's what we're going to do. Ladies and gentleman, with a little help from Adam Sandler and Miley Cyrus."

Together Cyrus and Sandler performed an emotional cover of Dido's 'No Freedom.'

Before the 24-year-old singer delivered a powerful yet heartbreaking rendition of 'The Climb.'

Taking to Instagram, Cyrus spoke out about the shooting: "In honour of the lives lost, injured and affected by the tragic shooting in Vegas, @fallontonight & I dedicated this show to not only those mourning this horrific event but using this platform to encourage unity, peace & hopefulness!" she wrote.

"So we started this week off with a song I haven't performed in years ... #TheClimb. These words mean more now to me than ever... 'Keep The Faith' ..... Sending love to ALL! Enjoy the show tonight & #MileyWeek .... hope we can make you smile even thru so much pain @happyhippiefdn."

On Sunday night (PDT) a gunman opened fire during the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, killing 59 people and injuring more than 500 others. It's the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.
