In a statement to Fox News on Tuesday, Clark, 88, said she is in “shock and disbelief” at the despair seen across the world on Dec. 25.”I feel the need to express my shock and disbelief at the Christmas Day explosion in our beloved Music City,” Clark wrote, adding, “I love Nashville and its people.””Why this violent act – leaving behind it such devastation?” Clark pressed.

The singer, who saw her song soar to the top of the Billboard charts in 1965, said that after she was told about “Downtown” being used “in the background of that strange announcement” Clark said she wondered, “Of all the thousands of songs – why this one?”
