Miley Cyrus wanted at least one of the 500-plus victims of the Route 91 Harvest festival shooting in Las Vegas (where at least 58 people were killed and 500-plus were injured on Oct. 1) to personally know she was thinking about them. Her name is Katrina Hannah and she’s recovering in the hospital from bullet wounds in her shoulder and neck and she recently received a very special video from Cyrus.
“Hi Katrina,” Cyrus says into the camera. “This is Miley. I’ve heard about you from so many wonderful people. Your name got to me through so many friends, some contestants on The Voice, and they said you’re a huge fan. I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you all the time — sending all good, healing, peaceful vibes to you and all your family and your friends.
“I hope you feel better soon and just want you to know that you’ll be in my mind and on my heart. See ya.”

In the side-by-side video posted to Twitter by ABC7 reporter Elex Michaelson, we see Katrina — wearing a neck brace — beaming while watching the video on a laptop from her hospital bed, eventually breaking into tears at Cyrus’ sweet message.

According to Michaelson, Hannah is now back home in Southern California with her family. In the same report, Hannah says of the video she received from Cyrus, “I cannot believe it. I cannot believe how much this has gone crazy. So much love — I cannot. I’m overwhelmed. Overwhelmed by the love.”
Katrina’s family and friends have a GoFundMe page to support her in her recovery here.
