One of the Orlando nightclub shooting victims was a performer who has danced in the annual Atlanta Bachata Fest, a days long celebration of Latin dance and music.
Xavier Emmanuel Serrano Rosado, 35, worked at Disney Live in the Mickey’s Rockin’ Road Show, according to a blog set up in tribute of survivors. The tribute to him included this undated photo:
Authorities continued identifying victims overnight. The most updated list is here.
The dead include a bouncer a Pulse, Kimberly Morris, and Luis Vielma, who worked on the Harry Potter attraction at Universal Studios. Author J.K. Rowling saluted him via social media:
One of Rosado’s friends, Xander Negron, lit a candle in his and other victims’ honors Sunday night at the Parliament House club and resort. Negron had planned to join the group who went to Pulse for a Latin night event event, but changed his plans at the last minute.
“I changed my destiny,” he said Sunday, his eyes welling with tears. “I got another chance. I’m going to live my life to the fullest.”
