Three artists who performed at a c and w festival that became the site of the deadliest mass shooting in contemporary U.S. history honored those music fans lost at lethal performance attacks with a tearful efficiency at the Grammy Awards.
Country artists Eric Church, Maren Morris and Brothers Osborne delivered a moving performance of Eric Clapton’s Grammy-winning traditional “Tears in Heaven,” throughout the 60th annual Grammys Awards in New York City on Sunday, the names of victims behind them.
” All c and w was reminded in the most terrible way then connection we share with fans and the caring power that music will always supply,” said Eric Church who appeared to struggle to speak.
The artists put their own spin on the mournful tune in honor of the victims at the Path 91 Harvest Celebration last October in Las Vegas, along with a bombing outside an Ariana Grande performance in Manchester, England, in May.
” Tears in Paradise,” which won 3 Grammys in 1993 consisting of record and song of the year, was written after Clapton’s four-year-old son died in 1991 after falling out of a high-rise window.
The touching homage was dealt with tenderly in between vocalist TJ Osborne’s emotional baritone, Morris’ Texas twang and Church’s powerful singing, although a bad microphone made much of Morris’ intro before the song muddled.
” The painful fact is that this year in simply those two occasions 81 music enthusiasts, just like us, went out to delight in a night of music and never ever came back house,” Morris stated.
