The Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles (GMCLA) dedicated a Christmas carol to the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary School during its annual Christmas concert.

Gunman Adam Lanza, 20, last Friday forced his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut and killed 26 people, including 20 children, before taking his own life.

Forty-six elementary school students from Creative Planet School of the Arts joined GMCLA in a cover performance of David Bowie's and Bing Crosby's Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy.

“The Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles and students from the Creative Planet School of the Arts dedicate this performance to the families of Newtown, Connecticut and to those whose lives have been changed forever,” the chorus said in a prologue to a video posted on YouTube. “Our hearts are with you. Let there be peace.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

GMCLA was the first gay men's U.S. chorus to tour central Europe and to perform for a sitting president, Bill Clinton.
