SNL Children’s Choir Opens Show with ‘Silent Night’
Jon | On 16, Dec 2012
“Saturday Night Live” opened with a children’s choir performing “Silent Night” in memory of the 20 children and seven adults killed in the shooting spree in Newtown, Conn. It was a departure from the usual comedic opening, but struck the right tone and was the only reference during the show to the school shooting.
After the song, the New York City Children’s Chorus shouted out the usual introduction: “Live from New York, it’s ‘Saturday Night!”‘ They later returned to perform with musical guest Paul McCartney.Tell us what you think in the comments below or on:
