In perhaps the only non-mockable R. Kelly news of recent months, the controversial R&B artist has written and recorded a heartfelt tribute for the children killed in the massacre in Newtown, Conn., last month. The track, "I Know You Are Hurting," has an uplifting gospel sound, featuring a chorus of children with Kelly's support vocals in the background.  Together they sing: "I know you're hurting / I hear you crying, but come tomorrow, there's a place you can go."
