Underwood looked and sounded angelic as she performed the hymn “Softly and Tenderly,” while pictures of all those in the country music industry who died flashed on the screen behind her. 

Underwood powered through the performance, but paused as her voice broke once the images of the victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting appeared on the screen. Collectively and in groups, black and white images of each of the 58 victims appeared on he screen behind the singer.

Taking a beat to collect herself, Underwood continued on, singing the last note to cheers and applause from the audience.

Watch a clip of the end of the performance below.
