R. Kelly has recorded a song paying tribute to the victims and survivors of last month’s school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.


The gospel-style “I Know You Are Hurting” features a choir of both adults and children singing lyrics that include, “I know you’re hurting / I hear you crying / But come tomorrow / There’s a place you can go.”
