Following the tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary School last week, The Voice opened the show yesterday with a tribute to the fallen victims of the heinous crime.
Backed by the contestants, judges Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, and Christina Aguilera gave an emotional and muted performance of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah". In remembrance of those who were senselessly lost in the tragedy, each person on stage held a card with a victims' name and age written across it. It was a simple but powerful reminder of those, mostly unbearably young, lives that were lost in Newton, Connecticut.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected.
