Grace Too

Gord Downie’s powerful and poignant rendition of The Hip’s “Grace Too”.

No mere drop, he threw the mic, then “You can here the exact moment the country’s heart broke.” I think that sound will resonate for more than a generation or two. He doesn’t walk away, in a display of “Canadian-ness”, he picks up the mic and gently puts it back on the stand.

This is probably the most emotion I’ve ever seen come from a stage, it’s sublime. If it doesn’t hit you in the chest and make your face wet, you might not have a heart.
