Brooks took to Facebook Live to share his feelings about the incident, getting emotional as he thanked the first responders and courageous concertgoers who risked their own safety to protect others. That’s what it’s all about. When things go bad, music and musicians go to work,” Brooks said in the video regarding how other artists should respond to any fears of taking the stage in light of the shooting. So, you got a gig tonight? “Those people in those seats, they come to get away from it all, to be happy, to be joyous, to sing, and to love one another. “When things go bad, doctors go to work. Start it again, start spreading the love. When thing go bad, policemen go to work. Start creating the greatest power music holds, and that’s the power to heal.”
Brooks followed his statements with an equally emotional rendition of 2005 single, “The Change.”
