Local High School Student Composes Song for Sandy Hook Victims

’26 Angels' by Bailey Jeffko

Canton High School junior Bailey Jeffko has written this song for those who were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown last week.

As of Wednesday morning, this video already had close to 20,000 hits on YouTube. It has been played at Newtown High School, and there are plans to include Jeffko in future fundraisers.

Jeffko had this to say about the song:

"This is an original song in tribute to the victims of the Sandy Hook Shooting that took place on Dec. 14, 2012. I hope that when people hear this song they appreciate what they have and realize how important it is to tell the people they care about how much they love them as much as they can."

Grieving through music is cathartic - almost like prayer in a way....., Here is another really powerful tribute song to Newtown - haunting and heartbreaking. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlSpxaL01NA
