Paul Simon appeared along with Yo-Yo Ma and James Taylor at Ground Zero today to commemorate the World Trade Center memorial. He sang "The Sound of Silence," a choice that clearly resonated with the audience. 10 years ago, Simon sang "A Bridge Over Troubled Water" during the "America: A Tribute to Heroes" benefit concert. Unlike his performance then, Simon's rendition today sounded less like a production and more like he was speaking to the people around him, who hugged, cried, and gave his words meaning.
