Miranda Lambert - A Teary-Eyed Performance Marks The Oklahoma Tornado Benefit For Miranda Lambert

We all know that celebrities tend to get a bit emotional at times of great struggle, but Miranda Lambert reached a new level at the Oklahoma benefit for those who lost lives and property in the May 20th tornado. While performing her song “The House That Built Me,” live from the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, the singer was constantly choking back tears, Access Hollywood reports. After singing the line: “Mama cut out pictures of houses…” referring to a family planning their defame home and eventually building it, the star reportedly got so emotional, that she had to take a break from singing and hand it over to the crowd for a little audience participation.

Lambert handed over the verse to the concert attendees to finish, while she regained her composure. Eventually she did finish the performance, but it was obviously a struggle. At the end, she even felt the need to apologise, saying at the end of her performance: “Sorry” to the crowd and adding, “I love you Oklahoma.”

Miranda was joined for the benefit by a number of other performers, including her husband, Blake Shelton, as well as other musical celebrities like Reba McEntire, Ryan Tedder, Darius Rucker, Usher, Rascal Flatts and Luke Bryan. Vince Gill, who hails from Oklahoma, dedicated his moving performance of “Threaten Me with Heaven” to “the 24 people that didn’t make it,” he said on stage on Wednesday night.
