Chris Young, who was in Las Vegas during the shooting on Oct. 1, shared an uplifting message on social media on Wednesday night (Oct. 4) before his performance at the Paul Paul Theatre in Fresno, Calif.
“Hey guys, I’m sitting on my bus,” said Chris in the video. “I know I haven’t really said a whole lot, other than what I said on Twitter the night of everything that happened in Vegas, but people lost their lives, people were injured and I’m so heartbroken over that. Thoughts are with those families and everybody that’s having to go through that, and deal with that. That should never happen at a concert. I hugged my family and talked about what I was going to do this week, as far as this show that I’m going to play tonight, but I’m a musician and music can heal. So, I’m hoping that this is a night of trying to do that for a lot of people that are here. Thank you to all the first responders, firefighters, police officers and everybody that was just helping people that they didn’t even know. And I love you guys very much.”
