Standing in Support of Ukraine
The horrors of what's happening in Ukraine are playing out in our living rooms every day. One evil madman attempting to take over a country targeting civilians, hospitals, communities is unfathomable! We pause and look into our own country and the vulnerability that conspiracies misinformation spawns is seen front and center.
Saturday Night Live normally kicks off each show with some humor, but the comedy sketch series opened with a tribute performance to Ukraine amid the ongoing Russian invasion.
The Ukrainian Chorus Dumka of New York performed a “Prayer for Ukraine” during the opening of SNL on Saturday on Feb. 26. Cast members Kate McKinnon and Cecily Strong introduced the choir.
The choir sang the melancholy tune in front of a live audience and a table of candles that spelled the name of Ukraine’s capital city, Kyiv.
Russian troops launched an attack on Ukraine this week. The ongoing invasion involves explosions and airstrikes on the city.
Thanks to Billboard for providing some of this information.
We continually pray for Ukraine and humanity.
