This Christmas, Demi Lovato paid tribute to the children lost in the Newtown, Conn., shooting earlier this month.
In a video posted to YouTube on Christmas Eve, the "X Factor" judge sings the 1993 Alabama Christmas tune "Angels Among Us" in a performance dedicated to the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. In the clip, Lovato is accompanied by a guitar player and a piano player in a candle-lit studio.
"We can never imagine what the families in Newtown, Conn., are experiencing right now," says the video's opening message. "And while there is nothing we can do to replace their loss, we can stand together and support them during this difficult time. This song is in honor of those angels we lost on Dec. 14."
Lovato most recently performed her hit single "Give Your Heart a Break" on the "X Factor" Season 2 finale alongside third-place finishers Fifth Harmony. She sang "Break" during a performance at the VH1 Divas concert in Los Angeles the same week.
