So. many. chills.

About an hour before a gunman opened fire on Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, performers Big & Rich led the crowd in singing “God Bless America.”

Concert-goers held up their phones, creating a sea of lights as they belted out the patriotic song with the country duo. Some for the last time.

The emotional video is an example of American unity, as Big & Rich put it.

Watching it will make you weep, considering you know that shortly after, 59 people were killed and more than 500 injured when a 64-year-old terrorist shot at the crowd from the Mandalay Bay’s 32nd floor.

Big & Rich have set up a GoFundMe for victims and have raised more than $3 million of their $4 million goal

Like the patriotic tune states, God Bless America.
