Saturday Night Live opened their show with a powerful and heartbreaking tribute to the recent massacre at a Connecticut elementary school. Instead of going for laughs in their cold open, The New York City Children’s Chorus performed “Silent Night.”

“Silent night, holy night / All is calm, all is bright / Round yon Virgin Mother and Child / Holy Infant so tender and mild.”

“Sleep in heavenly peace / Sleep in heavenly peace.”
