Carrie Underwood, Lady A, Thomas Rhett, Tyler Hubbard, and more will host “A Night Of Joy Celebrating The Covenant School” and honor the March 27 Nashville school shooting victims. The show will take place on April 12 at 7 pm CT at The Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Belmont University.
The Fisher Center website wrote, “Join us and add your voice to honor the victims and their families, the church, staff, and the first responders. Hosted by Annie F. Downs (Author/Speaker), an extraordinary group of Nashville-based artists have gathered to lend their voices and talents in support.” All proceeds go to benefit The Covenant School.
Last week (3/3), Underwood and her husband, Mike Fisher, talked with their young sons about the shooting, as Mike shared on Instagram (3/30). Fisher posted, “This week has been one full of emotions! I can’t even imagine the devastation for the families with kids and staff at Covenant and for those who lost beautiful children and loved ones. My heart breaks for all of you! I’m so sorry! We are praying for you!”
He continued, “The other night, we talked to our boys about what had happened. They have good friends that attend covenant school. Explaining this to children is hard, but I think it’s important. Isaiah’s first question was why?? Why would someone do that?? I tried to explain to him that sometimes we will never know why, but we have evil in this world, and really bad things can happen.”
He added, “We told him that God loves us and that Jesus, his son, is the ONLY answer and hope we have in this broken world. It was a reminder that the most important thing we can do is point them to Jesus and show them what following him looks like because we never know when our time here on earth will be up! I pray this brings us all closer to our savior and that we boldly point people and our loved ones to Jesus because that’s what matters most!!”
Mike closed his post with a scripture, “John 16:33 – ‘I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.'”
