Pink And Kelly Clarkson Open AMAs with R.E.M.'s 'Everybody Hurts'

(Radio.com) The 2017 American Music Awards opened on a somber note: Jamie Foxx and his daughter introduced Pink and Kelly Clarkson, who performed a tribute to first responders from hurricanes and other catastrophic events in 2017.

The duo sang "Everybody Hurts" from R.E.M.'s 1992 album Automatic for the People. In his speech, Foxx hinted at political, environmental and social turmoil that swept the country in 2017.

"We needed the power of music to escape the news of the day," Foxx said. "We need the power of music to help us heal: from hurricanes, wildfires, hate, hatred-fueled violence. 2017 was a year that tested our faith." Read more here.
