VEGAS STRONG: Sean Hannity, Big & Rich Host Benefit for Las Vegas Victims

Fox News host Sean Hannity joined forces with country superstars Big & Rich Thursday night, hosting an all-star music benefit to help the survivors of the deadly Las Vegas rampage that left 58 people dead and hundreds wounded.

Speaking with the packed crowd, Sean thanked the heroic first-responders that ran towards danger while others were struggling to run away, saying the world witnessed the “best of humanity” while the deadly tragedy unfolded.

“What an honor, I just want to take a minute: Where are the first responders? The policemen, the firemen, the paramedics, where are you? Put your hands up. Vegas, let’s give them a big hand tonight,” Sean Hannity told the audience as they began chanting “Vegas Strong!”

“We were reporting from here for over five days and my friends back in New York were asking me, ‘How do you feel about it?’ And I said it reminded me a lot of 9/11. It reminded me that there’s evil in this world,” Sean said.

“We saw your first responders, your policemen, your firemen, we saw neighbor helping neighbor, and we saw an amazing display of love, honor, compassion, and the best of humanity. I salute all of you in Vegas tonight,” he added.

In a somber moment of solidarity and unity, concert goers raised their phones and sang along with country stars Big & Rich as they performed ‘God Bless America’ to the emotional crowd; just as they had done at the Route 91 Harvest Festival just one hour before a lone gunman rained bullets down on the event.
