Blake Shelton understands pain and what it means to lose a loved one in a car accident, so he wanted to help others facing the same tragedy.

He recently sent a rather touching message to one mourning Massachusetts community.

Quaboag Regional Middle/High School in Warren lost three beloved students in a car crash that happened in West Brookfield, Massachusetts, November 6.

Shelton heard about the tragedy and shared his condolences by sending a heartfelt video message to the small-town school. He said:

I just was made aware of the car accident and man it breaks my heart, ... I completely know how it feels. I lost my brother in a car accident. ... It’s the worst possible feeling. It’s confusion, it’s anger. It’s just an overall brokenness and it’s just going to take a lot of time to heal.

I still miss my brother every day and you’re going to miss those guys every day.

Blake's Tweet And A Personal Story

Blake and his ex-wife, Miranda Lambert, wrote a single in 2011 called "Over You," which was inspired by his late brother Richie.

Shelton’s heartwarming message was contained in a longer tribute video posted by Quaboag, that began with photos of the three cherished students who died.

I’m thinking of you. It gets easier, it just takes a long time.

He also encouraged the students to "honor their memory and never forget about them.”

It is truly touching for Blake to take out time to send that message to the school students. Maybe more celebrities need to follow after his steps as well.
