Miley Cyrus is a week-long resident guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and she kicked off the show on Monday, October 2, 2017, with a touching tribute to the Las Vegas Shooting victims. In a surprise twist, Adam Sandler joined Miley Cyrus as she opened the show with Dido’s No Freedom.
The performance was moving, emotional, and helped bring a tiny bit of comfort to those devastated by the tragic shooting. She also closed the evening program by performing The Climb that was also dedicated to those in Las Vegas. You can watch Miley Cyrus perform both songs below.
Miley was asked why she chose the song No Freedom to dedicate to the Las Vegas Shooting victims. She explained that there truly is no love without freedom.
By that, she clarified that America is supposed to be the freest nation but if people are afraid to enjoy music, go to a concert, or see a movie, then there isn’t freedom.
She encouraged people not to give in to bullies and fear but to embrace love and freedom. She spoke about sharing hope and not fear.
Miley Cyrus has only recently begun singing her2009 hit song The Climb in public. She recently posted an Instagram story where she sang the song A cappella. Miley chose the song to perform and it is a truly moving, and powerful performance. You can hear Miley Cyrus close out the show in the video below.
Fans took to social media to state that Miley’s performances spread hope and love at a time when the nation needed it most. Many thanked her for choosing the songs.
Miley Cyrus has always been vocal and outspoken about causes she believes in. It should come as no surprise that she would use a public platform such as the The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, to continue speaking out against hate and promote love, hope, and healing.
The songs quickly trended on social media networks as well as YouTube where No Freedom is currently at number seven.
Did you watch the show on Monday night? Miley will be on the show for the entire week, and we think there’s a good chance she’ll continue to dedicate songs to the wounded, their families, and the country as a whole.
