On Wednesday night, NBC broadcast their charity concert “Healing in the Heartland,” which included a series of performances featuring some of the biggest names in music in support of the tragedy that took place in Oklahoma last week. This entire event was put together by a man in Blake Shelton who clearly has a deep personal attachment to the state that he proudly calls home, as does his wife in Miranda Lambert.
The first video that we have below is a moving, tearful version of “The House That Built Me,” a song that she turned into a megahit in the past few years. What makes this song pure magic is that it can transform for many different occasions and while it has been important for many separate dates and events in the past, it was equally important for this one.
As for Shelton himself, he convinced one of his fellow coaches on “The Voice” in Usher to come on stage to perform “Home,” the Michael Buble hit that he covered several years ago for the first time. Calling the “OMG” singer one of the “coolest” people that he’s ever met, the two showed a surprisingly strong vocal blend for two artists who do completely different genres. This was also yet another reminder that while Usher may benefit from his dance moves on a number of occasions, he is a brilliant singer who understands vocals fairly well.
This event was held at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, and was broadcast across a number of different NBC-related platforms.
