Miranda Lambert Overcome By Emotion At Oklahoma Tornado Benefit Concert [Video]
Miranda Lambert, whose husband Blake Shelton organized the Oklahoma benefit concert, broke out in tears while performing her song, “The House That Built Me,” which she dedicated to the animals affected by the recent string of deadly tornados.
At the benefit concert, titled Healing in the Heartland, Shelton introduced his wife before she sang her Grammy-winning song. The Oklahoma native called Lambert “an amazing woman, a compassionate human being, a great talent – and oh, by the way, an amazing wife."
“I thought if I could touch this place or feel it this brokenness inside me might start healing,” sang Lambert through her tears. “Out here it's like I'm someone else I thought that maybe I could find myself If I could walk around, I swear I'll leave won't take nothing but a memory from the house that built me."
Shelton also took to the stage, performing a duet with fellow The Voice judge Usher. Rascal Flatts, Reba McEntire, Darius Rucker and Luke Bryan performed live as well. Those who couldn’t make it, including Carrie Underwood, Alicia Keys and Garth Brooks, sent messages of support to the concert.
The tornado that rampaged through the Oklahoma City suburb on May 20 took the lives of 24 people, including young children who were trapped at their elementary school.
