Despite being a time of joy and cheer, there is still a dark cloud over this holiday season. Roughly two weeks ago, 20 children were murdered during the tragic Newtown, Connecticut massacre. And Demi Lovato has chosen to honor their memory, with a new song called “Angels Among Us.”
Demi recently released a video for the track and made sure to address the tragedy before kicking off a tender acoustic performance.
“We can never imagine what the families in Newtown are experiencing right now,” a message said before the clip. “And while there is nothing we can do to replace their loss, we can stand together and support them during this difficult time. This song is in honor of those angels we lost on December 14.”
The video packs quite an emotional punch too, with Lovato pouring her heart out in a candle-lit room. And keeping with the theme, the clip also provides a link to wearenewtown.org, a site which benefits victims of the shooting.
