Sugarland Holds ‘Moment Of Silence’ After Their Stage Collapses, Killing 5 People [VIDEO]

According to RadarOnline, Sugarland has been dealing with a tragedy that occurred before their performance at the Indiana State Fair. High winds caused the stage to collapse, injuring 45 people in the crowd and killing 5 others. When Sugarland was finally able to take the stage, they called for a ‘moment of silence’.

“While music cannot change the events and losses at the Indiana State Fair, it can hopefully serve as a ritual and a balm to provide comfort and facilitate healing in this time of great sorrow.”
