A memorial service is planned today for the victims of the tragic accident at a Sugarland concert on the weekend at the Indiana State Fair. High winds had toppled over the stage ontop of the crowd, killing five and injuring fifty who were waiting for the duo to take the stage. Sugarland and Sara Bareilles cancelled their performance at the Iowa State Fair last night after the accident. The fair is set to re-open today with a memorial tribute.
“There are no words to process a moment of this magnitude and gravity. There are only prayers for peace in the hearts of the bereft, and prayers of thanksgiving for those who were spared or safe. A piece of our heart is left in that grandstand.” – Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles on their official website.
Our thoughts are with the families and friends of the victims in this tragic accident.
