Darius Rucker Honors Charleston Church Shooting Victims With 'Amazing Grace'


Charleston, South Carolina native Darius Rucker honored the nine victims of the tragic shooting at the city's Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church with a stunning version of "Amazing Grace" during his 2015 Southern Style Tour stop in Cedar Park, Texas.

Standing in the spotlight, Rucker sang the first verse of the hymn without any backing music. A video of the performance has made it's way online.

"I want to say to all the people at the Mother Emanuel, my love is there," he recently said of the shooting on a recent visit to The Talk. "But to the people of Charleston — people ask me all the time what my favorite part of Charleston is, and I always say the people, and they proved it through this. I'm so proud of my community, my town, the way we got together. He tried to spread us apart, and he just got us together and made us stronger."
