af6f7c09ab373aa19bb39a0ae7cb6f36 New Song:  R. Kelly   I Know You Are Hurting (Sandy Hook Tribute)

Today saw the children of Newton, Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary return to the school for the first time since that life-changing tragedy of late 2012.

As the world continues to mourn for the children who fell victim to the senseless act, ‘The World’s Greatest’ crooner R. Kelly unveils ‘I Know You Are Hurting’ in their honor.

The tune is surely a tear-jerker, but Kelly does not actually contribute his vocals to the tune and instead relies on a children’s choir to sing his lyrics – an addition that makes the song all the more saddening. See what we mean below:


Kudos to Kelly for this number.  Indeed, it does not help the healing process when there is constant reminder of tragedy.  However, it’s our duty to remember such events so that they aren’t repeated.  And, more importantly, honor the survivors and their families.

Your thoughts?

    I think what he did was a beautiful thing. My heart and prayer goes out to the families of the lost ones and the lost souls. Unfortunately, children dying occurs too frequently around the world and its time to pay respects to ALL the children of the world.

      I UNDERSTAND YOUR FRUSTRATIONS IN REGARDS TO THE CHICAGO SUMMER OF KILLING. ITS UNJUST AND IM PISSED ABOUT THE LACK OF COVERAGE, BUT THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO.

      IF YOU SHOW ME YOUR FRIENDS I’LL SHOW YOU YOUR FUTURE AND TRUTH BE TOLD A LOT OF THE DEATHS IN CHICAGO REVOLVED AROUND THIER GANG AND YOUTH ISSUES. THE CHILDREN OF NEWTON WERE AT SCHOOL AND THEIR FRIENDS ONLY FINGER PAINTED.

      AT THE END OF THE DAY NO INNOCENT PERSON CHILD OR NOT CHILD DESERVES TO DIE ESPECIALLY IN THAT FASHION NO MATTER WHAT RACE.

      IM A BLACK MAN FROM THE SOUTH, I GREW UP IN A TIME THAT I COULD ACTUALLY SEE KLAN RALLIES 3 MILES FROM MY NEIGHBORHOOD. SO MY DISDAIN FOR CERTAIN “MAINSTREAM” INDIVIDUALS PREVALENT.
      GUN LAWS DO NEED TO CHANGE YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH A MORE RIGOROUS PROCEDURE TO GET A DRIVERS LICENSE.

      WHICH MAKES NO SENSE THERE HAVE TO BE NEW GUIDE LINES THIS IS COMING FROM SOMEONE WHO LEGALLY OWES AND IS LICENSED TO CARRY. ITS DEF NOT ME I’M WORRIED ABOUT BUT THOSE WHO DONT NECESSARILY THINK LIKE ME… JUST MY THOUGHTS HAVE A BLESSED DAY

        A child finger painting at school is no different than a child outside playing and getting caught up in the cross-fire HOW DARE YOU. Yes that was a tragic event that took place at sandy-hook – but i’m not going to sit here and value their lives over others who have died tragically.

        Also everytime a black child or adult is gunned down it isn’t always centered around gang violence like the media wants people to believe. They have been pushing that old myth for years so that people can grow desensitized of it and adopt that f***** up attitude that you have only to say insensitive remarks such as” IT’S A DIFFERENCE” Why because they were white? Please go somewhere with that. Society has been brain-washed to place value on white life while turning their nose to others pain and loss 22 asian children were stabbed the same day across the pond and nobody said s*** – But the same people wanted the world to stop for them. Whites aren’t no better than nobody else and their lives are of no more value.

    I dont think yall who are mocking R. Kelly as an alleged child m******* realize that you are not only insulting him but you are insulting the children who were killed in this shooting. You f****** ignorant asses brats really have no heart or soul.

    Anyway, this was a beautiful song.

    @ LOVE LETTER

    Most of the people including Monstarebel talking s*** about him are thatvrapejuice posing as fake users just to start s***. Why do youhink on just about every Rihanna, Beyonce, Christina post etc….Monstarebel is the very first one to rrspond regardless if its a positive or negatice comment. Because its Sam posing as this person just to inflate her hits.

    I don’t understand how anyone can find something bad to say about this song. I mean, the man isn’t even singing on it so you can’t hate. It’s very touching. Just a choir and those lyrics really hit home.

    R. Kelly is a musical genius. He always uses his talents for great inspirational songs. You can’t hate on that. So shut up.

    Beautiful song. R. Kelly is a Genius and a FANTASTIC singer. Everyone called Michael a freak then he died now you love him,some called Elvis a racist now he’s the greatest. Keep you judgement to yourself.
