We Remember: 5 Sandy Hook Musical Tributes

We Remember: 5 Sandy Hook Musical Tributes

I am a writer. Words are my life, but when 28 people die in a school shooting, most of who were under 10-years-old, there are no words.

Luckily there is music, a universal language, to lift us up and help us mourn, remember and heal.

Take a look at five beautiful Sandy Hook musical tributes and please share any others you have comes across in the comments.

On NBC’s hit singing competition show the coaches (Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Cee-Lo Green) and contestants paid tribute to the Connecticut shooting victims by singing “Hallelujah.” Each person held a sign with the name and age of a victim.
