Sandy Hook Chorus and Jennifer Hudson sing "America the Beautiful" at Super Bowl

The Sandy Hook Elementary School Chorus from Newtown, Connecticut sang "America the Beautiful" before Super Bowl XLVII tonight. They were joined by Jennifer Hudson midway through the performance.

Sandy Hook Elementary was the scene of the December 14 shooting in which 20 first graders and six adults were killed.

The performance was a moving moment for the Super Bowl, both in the way the song was delivered, as well as simply having those kids on the field. Twitter liked the moment as well:
