Maren Morris, Brothers Osborne and Eric Church pay tribute to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting in powerful GRAMMYs performance

Maren Morris, Brothers Osborne and Eric Church gave a heartfelt tribute to the victims of the Route 91 Harvest Festival and Manchester bombing at the 2018 GRAMMYs. 

The country stars performed a moving rendition of Eric Clapton's iconic song "Tears of Heaven" as the names of the victims of the tragic mass shooting were illuminated in the background. 

Maren Morris, Brothers Osborne and Eric Church all performed during the three-day country music festival where the gunman, Stephen Paddock opened fire, killing at least 58 people and injuring more than 500 concertgoers in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

The country stars also honored the victims of the Manchester bombing terror attack that killed at least 22 people and dozens more injured after an Ariana Grande concert in May 2017.

Morris, who released the song "Dear Hate" shortly after the Las Vegas shooting, told her Twitter followers why she felt the need to release the song she recorded three years before the tragedy with country legend, Vince Gill.

Proceeds of the song have been donated to various Las Vegas charities that are helping the victims of the tragedy. 

Following the shooting, Church also released the song “Why Not Me," honoring his fans that were killed at the festival.

“In all honesty, there’s not a day that goes by since that day that I have not thought of it and thought of the people and the victims,” Church told The Associated Press.

Brothers Osborne have also been actively helping the victims of the tragedy by supporting and raising awareness for the Vegas Strong Center, an organization that supports the families of the victims with financial and counseling services.
