R. Kelly Has Recorded a Sandy Hook Tribute Song


has recorded a tribute to the victims of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary last month.   It's called "I Know You Are Hurting (Tribute to the Newtown, Connecticut Kids)", and it features a children's choir.  (Actually, a children's choir sings the song, and it features R. Kelly.  He wrote it, but he doesn't actually sing a verse.)

The song is available on iTunes, and the proceeds will benefit the victims' families.

The lyrics include the line:  "We need your love, to shower down / In our hearts, hear us now.  We need some answers / I know you're hurting, I hear you crying.  But come tomorrow, there's a place you can go."

You can find the audio on YouTube, here.
