Jennifer Hudson and Sandy Hook Chorus perform “America the Beautiful”, video below. Jennifer Hudson was joined by the Sandy Hook Chorus during her performance at Super Bowl 47 on Sunday. The choir features 26 students from the Newtown, Connecticut school, where 20 first-graders and six adults were horrifically killed on December 14.

The group’s moving rendition of “America the Beautiful” came less than two months after the tragedy. Wearing white shirts, khaki pants, and the green ribbons that have become synonymous with awareness of the tragedy that befell the school, the mixed boy-girl choir began the song for the first verse until Hudson joined them at the 50 yard line.
