Watch Paul Simon Perform "The Sound of Silence" at Ground Zero

Paul Simon performed a goosebump-worthy rendition of “The Sound of Silence” at Ground Zero yesterday for the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The singer/songwriter wore a 9/11 memorial hat during the performance. Simon performed alone with only an acoustic guitar, and the notable silence of the huge space around him speaks volumes. You can watch him play at Ground Zero below.
