Miley Cyrus Sends Powerful Message to Fan Who Survived the Vegas Shooting
When Katrina Hannah attended the Route 91 Festival in Las Vegas on October 1st, she thought she would be in for nothing but a care-free night of music, friends, and fun. Tragically, however, her evening turned to a nightmare when a gunman opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, killing 58 people and injuring almost 550 more.
The 24-year-old was fortunately one of the survivors of the deadly attack, but was also seriously injured as a result. Katrina was shot twice, once in the shoulder and once in the neck, and still remains hospitalized. Miley Cyrus got wind that the girl is a HUGE fan and decided to send her a message of encouragement to help keep her spirits up until she can go home.
“I’ve heard about you from so many wonderful people,” the “Younger Now” singer started her video to Katrina. “Your name got to me through so many friends, some contestants on The Voice, and they said you’re a huge fan. I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you all the time. Sending all good, healing, peaceful vibes to you and all your family and your friends. I hope you feel better soon and just want you to know that you’ll be in my mind and on my heart. See ya!”
Katrina was absolutely shocked when she realized that MiCy had personally reached out, which you can see below:

We are still mourning the loss of the nine teens and one child who died in the Manchester terrorist attack about five months ago:
Georgina Callander, 18
Georgina Bethany Callander, from Whittle-le-Woods in Lancashire, was the first victim to be named. Her friend confirmed that the teen passed away in the hospital the day after the attack, with the victim's mother at her side.
The 18-year-old was a student at Runshaw College in Leyland, where she was studying Health and Social Care. The school released the following statement soon after the news broke: "It is with enormous sadness that it appears that one of the people who lost their lives in Monday's Manchester attack was one of our students here at Runshaw College. Georgina Callander was a former Bishop Rawstorne pupil studying with us on the second year of her Health and Social Care course."
"Our deepest sympathies, thoughts and prayers go out to all of Georgina's friends, family, and all of those affected by this loss," the statement continued. "We are offering all available support possible at this tragic time, including counseling with our dedicated student support team."
