Keith Urban performs moving tribute to Las Vegas shooting victims

During the event, organizers collected donations to the Music City Cares Fund, pledging 100 percent would be sent to help with the immediate and ongoing needs of victims in Las Vegas.

Keith Urban, who told the crowd he was "shell-shocked" upon learning of the shooting Monday morning, sang loud enough to be heard across the Cumberland when delivering a devastatingly emotional version of Simon and Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water", which included a brief, blink-and-you'd-have-missed-it tease of Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'" - a subtle tribute to the late rock legend.

"Father, in silence, we lift up-we just imagine all of the people rebuilding their lives-broken, grieving-and as a group, I don't even know how to imagine lifting them all up, but I'm just picturing us nearly like slinging them on our backs, lifting them up in our arms to the light of your love", she said in prayer.

The 49-year-old entertainer took part in a vigil on Monday night (October 2) in Nashville, Tenn.

"It's the one thing about country music that's always been at the centre of it-and that is community". "I said, 'Yeah, really there was a lot of people killed last night.' And she said, 'Did you know any of them?' And I said, 'Not that I know of.' And then she said, 'Well then why are you so sad?' I said, 'Well, first of all, these were innocent people, horrifically taken'". "Honestly, as a performer, these scenarios go through my head all the time".

And now, country music star Keith Urban, 49, has spoken out about the moment he broke the news of the massacre to his eldest daughter Sunday Rose.

Gill's wife Amy Grant led a prayer at the event.

"Those aren't the lights that matter", Esten proclaimed. According to authorities, a gunman opened fire from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino onto a crowd of concert goers as Jason Aldean played on the stage. "You shouldn't have to worry about gunfire in those places". Using 34 high powered guns, he began shooting at a crowd of 22,000 who were attending an outdoor country music festival. "You shouldn't have to worry about dying", Barry said.
