Wynonna Sings at Dan Wheldon’s Funeral
Wynonna Judd said goodbye to late IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon the best way she knows how. In song. Wy sang ‘Amazing Grace’ and ‘I Can Only Imagine’ at his funeral Saturday.
The Daily Mail reports Wynonna belted out the songs with a tissue clutched in her hand. Her sister, actress Ashley Judd, also attended the services. Ashley’s husband is IndyCar champ Dario Franchitti, so Wheldon’s unexpected loss has hit the Judd family particularly hard.
Wheldon, 33, was tragically killed last weekend in a fiery accident during an IndyCar race in Las Vegas.
Wheldon’s death affected many members of the country music community. Many stars reacted to the news of his death via Twitter as a way to mourn the lost of a man that several artists considered a friend.
I found this video on YouTube and found it a fitting and emotional tribute to Wheldon. I don’t know if it’s Wynonna singing or not, but in this case, it doesn’t really matter. Its beautiful all the same. R.I.P., Dan Wheldon.
