BRITAIN: London Gay Men’s Chorus Releases Charity Single In Tribute To Victims Of Pulse Massacre [VIDEO]

From the Guardian:

A British gay men’s choir is to release a cover of Bridge Over Troubled Water for victims of the Orlando shooting. The London Gay Men’s Chorus (LGMC) will release its version of Simon & Garfunkel’s hit on Friday, with proceeds to be split equally between the Pulse Victims Fund, organised by Equality Florida, and Galop, a London-­based charity that works to reduce LGBT hate crime in the UK.

The release of the charity single follows a performance of the song by the chorus at the London vigil to honour Orlando’s victims. Footage of the LGMC singing in a packed Old Compton Street in Soho was shared on social media and by news outlets around the world, receiving millions of views.

In the footage, members of the chorus can be seen wiping tears away as the gathered crowd cheers at the end of the emotional performance. “It’s a song that has taken on new meaning for us as a chorus but we hope it sends out a message of love and support to all of our LGBT brothers and sisters and our straight allies across the world,” Sharp said.
