Carrie Underwood's tribute performance of "Softly and Tenderly" was one of the most emotional moments of the 2017 CMA Awards.

During the 2017 CMA Awards, country music songstress Carrie Underwood sang “Softly and Tenderly” to honor those the country music industry has lost over the last year. At the close of the tribute, the 58 victims of the Las Vegas Route 91 Harvest Festival mass shooting were prominently featured. Understandably, Carrie became emotional during her touching performance.

 “Softly and Tenderly” Lyrics

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
Calling for you and for me.
See, on the portals, He’s waiting and watching;
Watching for you and for me.

Come home, come home,
Ye who are weary come home;
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling;
Calling, “O sinner, come home!”

O for the wonderful love He has promised,
Promised for you and for me.
Though we have sinned He has mercy and pardon;
Pardon for you and for me.

Come home, come home,
Ye who are weary come home;
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling;
Calling, “O sinner, come home!”

Come home, come home,
Ye who are weary come home;
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling;
Calling, “O sinner, come home!”

Carrie looked and sounded like an angel. What an amazing tribute to all those who have passed recently.
