"One thing about music, when it hits, you feel no pain."
- Bob Marley

"The Voice" is known for its extravagant performances and eccentric contestants, but on Monday night, the show adopted a different tone to pay tribute to the 28 victims of the ineffable tragedy that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. on Friday.

Holding cards adorned with the names and ages of the deceased, coaches Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera, along with this season's contestants, stood side-by-side to perform a poignant and heartfelt rendition of Canadian Leonard Cohen’s classic song, "Hallelujah."

Illuminated by candles, the group delivered a beautiful performance, as they tried to bring comfort to America through what they know best – music.
