A year following the devastating terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, 11-year-old David Archuleta sang for the New York City Fire Department Engine 54, Ladder 4, Battalion 9, which was the only firehouse to have 15 firefighters, an entire shift, killed on September 11.
Through a simple yet soulful song, young Archuleta honored those who gave their lives while saving others.
Archuleta isn't the only Latter-day Saint who has paid tribute to those who lost their lives during 9/11 through song. In 2011, the Tabernacle Choir created a Music and the Spoken Word special commemorating the 10-year anniversary of the attacks. Among the many songs shared was a sweet lullaby, "Goodnight, My Angel."
Watch the full 9/11 Music and the Spoken Word tribute below:
The Osmonds 2nd Generation (all sons of Alan Osmond: Michael, Nathan, Doug, David, Scott, and Tyler Osmond) also commemorated the 10-year anniversary of 9/11 with the song "Heal Our Land," written by Latter-day Saints Janice Kapp Perry and Senator Orrin Hatch. "May we never forget the heroes, the victims and those they left behind to carry on. May God watch over our troops and their families and may He continue to watch over ALL of us this day and always!" the Osmonds shared. That's a prayer we continue to share now and for years to come.
