The Grammys honor victims of Las Vegas and Manchester concert attacks

Awards

During the 60th Grammy Awards, Maren Morris helped introduce a special tribute to the victims of the Las Vegas and Manchester concert attacks. Morris along with Eric Church and the The Brothers Osborne sang a rendition of Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven."

The Las Vegas shooting took place in October during the Route 91 Harvest country music festival. 58 people were killed as a gunman opened fire on unsuspecting fans.

To introduce the performance Morris said, "Tonight, to honor those we lost, Eric Church, Brothers Osborne and I - who all performed in Las Vegas that tragic weekend - wanted to come together to honor the memory of the beautiful, music-loving souls so cruelly taken from us."

Morris also mentioned the suicide bombing that left 22 Ariana Grande concert goers dead in May. She said, "A few months earlier and a continent away, the same was true in Manchester, England."

While the country stars sang the tribute, light boxes behind them were illuminated with the names of the victims, along with some messages. It was a very powerful performance and one of the most memorable moments of the night.
