Video: Paul Simon Sings 'Sound of Silence' at Ground Zero During 9/11 Memorial


The Simon and Garfunkel star gives a soothing support for grieving families and friends who lost their loved ones during the 2001 tragic attack.

Paul Simon was one of the singers who visited Ground Zero on Sunday, September 11 to pay homage to the people who were killed and injured during the terrorist attack ten years ago. Wearing a suit and 9/11 Memorial cap, the music vet strummed his guitar and sang a moving rendition of "The Sound of Silence".

As Paul performed the song, footage of people in the World Trade Center site crying, embracing and singing along him is flashed on the screen. In 2001 a little more than a week after the tragic terror, the 69-year-old singer honored the victims with "Bridge Over Troubled Water" in "America: A Tribute to Heroes".

The other musicians taking part at the memorial over the weekend included cellist Yo-Yo Ma and singer James Taylor. The former performed a piece by Bach, while the latter delivered "You Can Close Your Eyes". Additionally, flutist Emi Ferguson performed "Amazing Grace".
