A group of Manchester residents gathered together in song on Thursday evening.


A crowd of about 400 got together at St. Ann’s Square in the city to honor the victims of the Manchester bombing. The UK was holding a nationwide, minute-long silence in tribute. After the silence, Lydia Bernsmeier-Rullow, clutching a bouquet of flowers, hesitantly began singing “Don’t Look Back in Anger” by Oasis.

Oasis formed in Manchester, so that, coupled with the words in the song, were particularly moving and relevant. Soon the whole crowd joined into to sing the 1996 hit.

A video was captured of the touching moment, and has since gone viral. “Take that look from off your face / You ain’t ever gonna burn my heart out,” a few voices sang before the whole crowd got into it. “And so, Sally can wait / She knows it’s too late as we’re walking on by / Her soul slides away / But don’t look back in anger / I heard you say.”

See the moment below.
