A Moving Tribute

Absolutely beautiful! An extremely moving tribute to those that suffered loss during the recent tornadoes in Oklahoma - knowing the background of this song, seeing the expressions on the faces of Blake and Miranda, understanding loss ourselves, we know this runs deep. For all their craziness, I think these two have beautiful hearts.

God bless them!  God Bless the people of Oklahoma in their resilience, optimism, and determination; and God bless America!

From Taste of Country:

"Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert brought their much-decorated ballad ‘Over You,’ which they penned together about the death of Shelton’s brother, to ‘The Voice‘ on Tuesday, performing the intimate and deeply personal song with a different purpose.

Sitting next to one another on a stage illuminated by foot lights, Shelton strummed his acoustic guitar, looking at his wife with pain all over his face while she belted out the lyrics. You could see the mix of emotion and admiration in his eyes as she delivered the words. Both looked to be welling up with tears, in light of the tragedy of their home state of Oklahoma, where a devastating tornado ripped through the region earlier this week.

The couple called attention to the situation in their state, as a text box was featured on the screen, calling for donations to aid the Red Cross in relief efforts for the victims.

“I think ‘Over You’ was the perfect song for this situation,” Shelton said after the show. 'The moment was right. I wish things could have been different. I wouldn’t have thought about performing a song like that, but it seemed like the right thing to do.'"
