Blake Shelton And Miranda Lambert Will Pay Tribute On The Voice To The Oklahoma Tornado Victims

20130521-202809.jpgWhat a heartbreaking devastation! My heart, my thoughts and my prayers are sent to all those affected by this treacherous tornado in Oklahoma.

There are no words at a time like this and, knowing that have been deaths in the wake of this tragedy, some of whom were children, makes this news so senseless and achingly sad.

In keeping with the many tributes and outpouring of support for the victims of Oklahoma, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert will reach out via their voices during tonight’s Results Show on The Voice.

According to EW.Com:

The Voice is showcasing an emotional tribute for tornado victims in tonight’s live episode.

Contestant coach and country artist Blake Shelton and his wife, singer Miranda Lambert, will perform a duet dedicated to their home state of Oklahoma. The song will be performed at the top of the show, which gets underway at 9 p.m. ET. NBC isn’t releasing the song’s title, but we’re told it’s a tune that’s “close to their hearts.” The performance will be accompanied by an on-screen number for American Red Cross donations.

However, you can immediately and easily make donations to the Red Cross as we speak. Do not hesitate. These people need our help now.
