Paul Simon performed "The Sound Of Silence" on Wednesday (December 19th) at the funeral of Newtown, Connecticut's Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victim, Victoria Soto, according to The New York Daily News. The 27-year-old teacher, who has been branded a hero for saving her students' lives, was honored by Simon, performed without an introduction at Stratford, Connecticut's Lordship Community Church and sang Soto's favorite song.
Afterwards, Simon's publicist released a statement explaining the connection between Simon and the Soto family: "Today, Paul Simon, at the request of their family friends, the Sotos, performed '(The) Sound Of Silence' at the funeral for their beloved daughter Vicki Soto. The Sotos and Simons met through Vicki's mother and Paul's sister-in-law, both nurses."
