The sassy, pistol of a singer has a soft spot in her heart for animals. Miranda's MuttNation Foundation is helping with the displaced pets following the tragic and devastating tornadoes that ripped through Oklahoma.
Miranda's husband Blake Shelton is an Oklahoma native and the two live in the state now. When the tornadoes destroyed the lives and homes of so many of his fellow Oakies, Blake quickly began putting together the benefit concert "Healing In The Heartland" that you saw on NBC TV and heard on B104.
Of course Miranda was one of the many stars who wanted to be a part of the benefit. Miranda came out on stage to sing her heartfelt hit single "The House That Built Me" with pictures of the animals that were affected by the storms and the rescue efforts for them. The emotions of the entire situation finally became a bit more that Miranda could handle as she began to cry and could not sing the song on the live concert.
The audience in attendance in Oaklahoma City quickly came to aid of the country star taking over and singing the lines for her. Miranda fed off the support of the audience and was able to gather enough composure to finish the song. She was still audibly shaken as she made a plea for donations after her song.
You can watch Miranda Lambert's performance of "The House That Built Me" from the "Healing In The Heartland" benefit concert in the video below.
Hats off to Blake, Miranda and everybody involved in the "Healing In The Heartland" benefit concert and a big "Thank You" to everybody that donated to the cause. To those in Oklahoma who are beginning to rebuild after this tragedy, our hearts, thoughts and prayers remain with you.
