Sugarland Band Credits Prayer Circle for Survival

Ad Feedback

A prayer circle is being credited with saving the lives of the band Sugarland.

The country music duo was set to perform on the stage that collapsed at the Indiana State Fair Aug. 14.
They were in a prayer circle before the collapse when their stage manager, Hellen Rollens, decided to hold them backstage for a minute longer.
Band members believe Rollens' decision saved every band and crew member's life.
Sugarland is planning a private memorial service in Indiana to honor the five fans that were killed in the tragedy. 

"We join them (the families) on their mourning benches," the band said in a letter posted on their website. "And we stand in the gap asking God to offer them peace and healing. For those suffering from injury we hold you up with prayers for complete healing of your own."
