Devvon Terrell – “Don’t You Worry Child (Sandy Hook School Tribute)”

One month ago yesterday, twenty-seven people were killed in a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut. Regardless of our closeness to the victims, or our distance from them, the deaths of children affect everyone who hears about them. One of the reasons I love music the most is because of the way it reacts to the world around it.

I was scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed and I found this video. Underground RnB singer Devvon Terrell recorded a cover of Swedish House Mafia’s anthem “Don’t You Worry Child” as a tribute to the twenty children murdered. He begins with a downtempo, vocoder-piano cover of John Martin’s vocals, before exploding into the progressive synths that made the original famous. Footage of smiling children undercuts shots of Devvon playing the piano. Please check out the video above.
