Love is Love is Love is Love is Love…

In einer bewegenden Zusammenkunft in Soho erinnerten hunderte Menschen gestern in Soho an die Opfer von Orlando. In einem bewegenden Beitrag sang der LONDON GAY MEN’S CHORUS Simon & Garfunkel’s BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER (Hier klicken, um das Video zu sehen).


Bei den TONY-Awards, dem Branchenpreis der US-Musical und Theaterindustrie, trug Preisträger und FreestyleTalent Lin-Manuel Miranda (Beste Kompostition für das Musical HAMILTON) Sonntagabend ein Sonett vor, das den Schmerz und die Hoffnung angesichts des Terror-Anschlags von Orlando in bewegende Worte fasst:

“My wife’s the reason anything gets done
She nudges me towards promise by degrees
She is a perfect symphony of one
Our son is her most beautiful reprise.
We chase the melodies that seem to find us
Until they’re finished songs and start to play
When senseless acts of tragedy remind us
That nothing here is promised, not one day.
This show is proof that history remembers
We lived through times when hate and fear seemed stronger;
We rise and fall and light from dying embers,
remembrances that hope and love last longer
And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love
cannot be killed or swept aside.
I sing Vanessa’s symphony, Eliza tells her story
Now fill the world with music, love and pride.”
