Country star Miranda Lambert broke down in tears during a show in New Orleans, Louisiana on Saturday (23Jun12) after witnessing the devastation Hurricane Katrina left in its wake seven years ago (05).
The singer headlined the Lakefront Arena and told fans she had spent her day touring areas which were affected by the storm.
Lambert revealed, "I saw some houses that still had boards on the windows... I live in Tornado Alley, in Oklahoma, and I know how disaster can affect a community.
"I just wanted you to know that I've prayed for you guys, and everything you went through, and that I appreciate you rebuilding your community and coming back stronger than ever."
But Lambert's emotional day became too much for her and she openly cried as she sang her track The House That Built Me, according to local news website
The star later told the crowd, "Seriously, y'all, I'm gonna have to kick your a**es if you tell anyone I was crying up here."
