Paul Simon Performs At Sandy Hook Teacher Victoria Soto’s Funeral

The often outspoken political activist, singer, songwriter Paul Simon paid tribute to the heroic deeds of Sandy Hook teacher Victoria Soto at her funeral on Wednesday.  The 27-year old Soto died protecting her first grade class from the gunman who ravaged the Sandy Hook School last week – by making sure they got into a closet before stepping in front of the gun that took her life.

Paul Simon knows the Soto family through his sister-in-law.

Mid-way through the funeral service, Simon approached the front of the church – without introduction – and performed his classic song “The Sounds Of Silence” to an emotionally-quiet church.  Afterwards, he took his seat without applause as the service continued.

The song has become a touch-stone of sorts at some of this nations’ defining memorials;  Simon performed the song at the 10-year anniversary memorial of 9/11 – a video of which can be found here.
