She added: “Thank you Sonja for inspiring me and all of us everyday with your joy. I love you so much it brings tears to my eyes just to think of all the years we’ve spent together backstage running the show, taking care of each other. You are one of a kind. I’m so proud of you.”

Gaga also honoured Durban’s husband, Andre Dubois, who confirmed that his wife passed away Friday. “And you and Andre, your unbreakable beautiful love is what life is all about,” she wrote in her Instagram post. “You can see it in this photo. Wanted to share this with the world and show them what true beauty looks like…..I love you girl. I love you so much.”

”My friend Sonja is very sick and I love her so much and if it’s OK with you, I’d like to sing this song for her,” she told the crowd.
