Sting "Fragile"

Thinking of this one on the Anniversary of September 11th.

You may or may not remember that Sting had scheduled a live webcast of a concert in Italy, to be made into a live album, for September 11th, 2001.

In light of the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington that morning, he chose to come out, do one song, and then shut down the webcast.

Before the one song, "Fragile," he said a few words.

Thoughtful and well-done, as artists' responses go, this may be among the best in the wake of that day.

Hear the song on Youtube.
