Gay Men's Chorus Of Los Angeles, Art Students Dedicate Christmas Carol To Sandy Hook Victims

A group of young students joined the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles for a poignant holiday tribute to the victims of the Sandy Hook tragedies in Newtown, Conn.

On Dec. 15, 46 students from the Creative Planet School of the Arts joined the men for an arrangement of "Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy," made famous by David Bowie and Bing Crosby.

"Music has a way of speaking to people that spoken words do not, and we felt that dedicating this video to the victims of Newtown was the only way to express our sorrow, grief and thoughts of hope," Christopher Verdugo, Executive Director of GMCLA, is quoted by Towleroad and a number of other media outlets as saying.
