Maren Morris' emotional 'Dear Hate' performance

Maren Morris released a song to honor victims of the mass shooting that took the lives of 58 concert goers at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. Maren wrote the song 3 years ago with Vince Gill but was waiting for the right time to release it. Maren performed 'Dear Hate' on stage for the first time and gave an emotional monologue before.

“I never thought I’d be performing (‘Dear Hate’) honestly, but I feel  like the message was so powerful the day we wrote it and that was three  years ago and it rings even more true now, unfortunately,” Morris said  onstage. “Music is such a healer and you guys as music lovers, I know I  said it earlier, but one of the most powerful things you can do is just  showing up here tonight. We’re not gonna stop playing music. We’re not  gonna stop going to shows. So I wrote this song with some friends of  mine a couple years ago.  … The response has been just so incredible, so  I’m gonna sing it tonight and I hope that, God forbid, any of you lost  anyone in that tragedy or if you’ve just gone through some dark times, I  hope this maybe brings you a little light.”

All proceeds from 'Dear Hate' will go towards the victims and Las Vegas relief.
