Ariana Grande issued a call for unity and gave her condolences after Sunday's mass shooting in Las Vegas that left at least 58 people dead and more than 500 injured.

In her response, she urged for gun control and asked for people to call the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history an act of terrorism, Reuters reported.

"My heart is breaking for Las Vegas," Grande wrote on Twitter. "We need love, unity, peace, gun control & for people to look at this & call this what it is = terrorism."

In May, 22 people died and 59 were injured after a suicide bombing occurred outside Grande's concert in Manchester.

Following the terrorist attack, she held a benefit and tribute to the victims. More than 50,000 people attended the "One Love Manchester" concert, which included performances by Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Niall Horan, Katy Perry, Coldplay, The Black Eyed Peas, Mac Miller, and Pharrell Williams.

In wake of the Vegas tragedy, a number of celebrities reacted on social media.

Lady Gaga also labeled the attack as terrorism, and added, "Terror bares no race, gender or religion," while Josh Gad made a plea for policy changes. "Dear Congress, we don't need your moment of silence. We need your moment of action. NOW," he wrote.
