Demi Lovato news! On Dec. 27, 2012, Too Fab shared the news that “The X Factor” celebrity judge dedicated her new song “Angels Among Us” to the shooting victims and their families in Newtown. The Connecticut schoolchildren were gunned down in cold blood at Sandy Hook Elementary School during a terrifying massacre. Killed by a deranged madman, the kids have become a symbol of the perilous fight Americans are making to end gun violence.
As a famous humanitarian despite her young age, Lovato has really tried to use her star power wisely. [She was born in 1992.] Aside from arguing perpetually with Simon Cowell on the hit reality television show “X Factor”, she speaks out regularly for the health and well-being of children around the world.
As a celebrity spokesperson for organizations like the Red Cross and St. Jude Children’s Hospital, it would have been uncharacteristic for her to stay quiet about the Newton issue for long. Too Fab shared:
The Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting has left the world in shock and devastated. In the wake of the massacre, celebrities continue to pay tribute to the innocent victims of Newtown, CT.
Following the footsteps of “The Voice” and her own show “The X Factor,” Demi Lovato has dedicated a song to the victims and their families in her new video for “Angels Among Us.”
The 20-year-old shared the video on Christmas day with her 11 million plus Twitter followers, delivering an emotionally charged performance. “Thinking of the families in Newton,” Demi wrote.
ABC news further shared:
Lovato recorded Angels Among Us and offered it as a video to fans on Monday… 10 days after suspected gunman Adam Lanza opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School, killing a total of 26 people, before allegedly turning the weapon on himself.
In the heartfelt promo, The X Factor judge/mentor performs with a guitar player and pianist in a candle-lit studio.
The video opens with the message: “We can never imagine what the families in Newtown, Conn., are experiencing right now, and while there is nothing we can do to replace their loss, we can stand together and support them during this difficult time. This song is in honor of those angels we lost on Dec. 14.”
Lovato is currently at risk of losing her job as a celebrity judge on “The X Factor”. As Simon Cowell is allegedly considering firing Britney Spears for not being sensation enough and the show’s season finale had an 18% ratings drop, getting her name in the press as much as possible to help the show’s press promotion is probably a smart move professionally (in addition to being a humanitarian gesture).
