The duo also prayed for the healthcare workers involved and said something must be done about the gun violence currently plaguing America.

Our bus was caught in the crossfire but we sheltered in place and everyone in our touring group is ok. Thank you for everyone reaching out. A reminder to keep your loved ones extra close today. We have to do something about gun violence in this country.
