Days after putting her star power behind the fight for justice for Trayvon MartinBeyoncé showed her support for victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

The superstar invited some of the survivors of the April attack backstage at her concert in Beantown on Tuesday night.

Mery Daniel, 31, Adrianne Haslet, 32, and Heather Abbott, 38, whose stories were told at length in a People Magazine profile in June, each lost their legs and have learned to walk again with prosthetics.
