As our nation mourns the tragic loss of twenty children and six adults to the senseless shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, contestants, coaches, and even the host of The Voice came together to pay a touching tribute to the lives that were lost last week.
According to NBC, contestants, coaches, and the host of The Voice sang a touching rendition of “Hallelujah” in remembrance of every person whose life was so tragically ripped away on December 14. While they sang, they held white cards that displayed the name and age of each person who lost their life that day.
Each of the judges’ had a short solo in the song and everyone else joined in on the harmonies and chorus. Lit candles in glass jars illuminated the dimmed stage during the somber performance. What a touching way to open the final night of live performances and to show love and support for those hurting and missing their loved ones.
Losing a loved one is always hard but losing a child is even worse, especially when the loss is to such a senseless act. We know this is an incredibly emotional and gut-wrenching time for the families of those who were lost. As a nation, we mourn with them for the senseless loss of the innocent children and adults of Sandy Hook.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the families of the victims and all those affected by the Sandy Hook tragedy.
