America the Beautiful Rings Out Over Paris

During the tenth anniversary commemoration of the 9-11 attacks in Trocadéro square in Paris across from the Eiffel Tower (the second largest 911 commemoration in the world next to those in Manhattan itself, according to the organizers in The French Will Never Forget association), Grace Weber and Blaine Krauss sing "America the Beautiful" under Jean-Pierre Heim's recreation of the World Trade Center's Twin Towers before doves are released into the skies.
