Music does help to soothe the soul. Do you believe that? I know I do. This week in light of all that’s been happening in the world it’s refreshing to go home at the end of the work day and listen to your favourite music. It is also comforting for music fans to hear words of encouragement in the form of a song, or the spoken word. Take Keith Urban, Vince Gill and Amy Grant, & Allison Krouse for instance this week who paid tribute to the Vegas victims. Keith Urban soothed with his version of the Simon & Garunkel classic “Bridge Over Troubled Water”.
The tributes have been far and wide and these are just a few of the healing moments from some of the entertaiment industry’s biggest stars.
JASON ALDEAN has canceled his concerts for the remainder of the week out of respect for the victims in the Las Vegas massacre. Aldean said it’s been an emotional time for everyone involved, so they plan to take some time to mourn the ones that were lost before resuming the tour on October 12th in Tulsa. Aldean also took to Instagram again to say how something has changed in the world and that it’s “time to come together and stop the hate.”

But tonight we’re going to let these families know that we are supporting them and that we will help them through their tragic loss.”
Dion, 49 continued, “We dedicate tonight’s show to all of the victims and their families, and to the first responders, and to the doctors and nurses who are working around the clock to save lives, and to so many heroes who did whatever they could to help complete strangers in a time of desperate need.”
