This is very sad. Kalley Heiligenthal is a popular worship singer who has over 200,000 followers on Instagram, according to the Daily Dot. She and her husband recently and tragically lost their baby daughter. Now the couple is asking for prayers to implore Jesus to bring their daughter back to life:
From Heiligenthal's Instagram:
We’re asking for prayer. We believe in a Jesus who died and conclusively defeated every grave, holding the keys to resurrection power. We need it for our little Olive Alayne, who stopped breathing yesterday and has been pronounced dead by doctors.

Her time here is not done, and it is our time to believe boldly, and with confidence wield what King Jesus paid for

The “chartered flight from Miami” turned out to be severely delayed coach seats, and upon arrival shocked concert-goers were met with partially constructed USAID disaster relief tents.
Heres a drive by tour of the tents:
Angry attendees have flocked to social media to express their disappointment:
