The Teen Choice Awards spread awareness on gun violence

Jessica Alba moved audiences to tears after giving passionate tribute to those affected by gun violence at the Teen Choice Awards.


The actress invited teenagers who had lost a family member to gun violence on stage, asking each to introduce themselves.


“[They] share an unlikely bond that is hard to comprehend,” she told the crowd.


“They’re the brothers, sisters, daughters, and family members of recent victims of gun violence. I’m talking about Aurora, Baton Rouge, Dallas, Minneapolis, Orlando, San Bernardino, Newtown. It keeps happening and it has to stop.

"Many of those impacted by these acts of violence are teens.”


After telling each their story, Jessica explained: 

"Tonight we stand together with these teens.

“United in a call for peace and an end to this violence. Now more than ever we need to stop, feel, and ask, ‘What’s going on?’”


Ne-Yo then took to the stage to sing Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On.


Jessica told the audience: "These teens had the courage to come here with their grief and take a stand. Tonight Ne-Yo and I and all of us here and all of you watching need to do the same.”


Ne-Yo added: “If you feel that we have to do better, I need you to stand up right now and take out your phones.”


The crowd was later asked snap pictures of the group on stage, and to post them to social media with the hashtag #StopTheViolence.
