It has been a tough week for Chrissy Costanza of New York band Against The Current.
THE ACT OF BARBARISM committed in Las Vegas this week also reached out to New Zealand and to Chrissy Costanza, lead singer for New York band Against The Current.
Against The Current were in the country to play a one-off concert in Auckland on Tuesday night as part of their world tour to promote their debut album In Our Bones.
For Chrissy it was a tough night - earlier she had learned that a cousin had been shot and injured in Las Vegas by gunman Stephen Paddock. Fifty nine people lost their lives and over 500 people were injured in a night of unspeakable terror. It is the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
After the concert Chrissy tweeted : "Hey New Zealand thank you for bringing so much light to me on a dark day. I loved that show so much, thank you."
She later tweeted: "Don't go numb. Don't turn off. Our hearts are all heavy but there are people who need light. I will not run or hide. I'm here to help."
