Following Thursday's devastating stadium collapse that killed two and injured more than 30, Madonna is continuing to do what she can to support the victims in Marseille. 

On Sunday morning, the originally scheduled concert date, the songstress arrived in the French city to visit several of the hospitalized victims, reports People. While it is unknown how many of the injured Madonna will see, the workers are being treated in three separate hospitals throughout Marseille.

The pop icon has been forthcoming with her emotions since the stadium's collapse late last week, first saying: "I am devastated to have just received this tragic news. My prayers go out to those who were injured and their families, along with my deepest sympathy to all those affected by this heartbreaking news."

The show went on as Madonna took the stage in Udine, Italy, on Thursday night, but not without a tearful tribute to those who lost their lives in the accident. "We're here to give life and to inspire life," she explained to her audience. "I feel so, so devastated to be in any way associated with anyone's suffering."

"Let's all just take a moment to appreciate life in general...We are all so blessed and so lucky to be alive."

While French authorities have opened a manslaughter investigation into the collapse, Madonna is scheduled to continue her world tour on July 21 with a sold-out stop in Barcelona.
