Jimmy Somerville Offers Rose and Emotional Message for Orlando: WATCH

Jimmy Somerville Orlando

Singer-songwriter Jimmy Somerville is offering a rose, “widely recognized as the flower of love,” in an emotional message for the victims in Orlando.

Somerville sang a gorgeous a cappella rendition of his Bronski Beat track “Why” before offering up the flower in his touching video.

“This rose is for all those who died in the early hours of Sunday morning in Orlando, and this rose is for all those who survived Sunday morning in Orlando, and this rose is also for you. Never stop holding their hands, never stop kissing the lips of those you love. Never let anyone take that away from us. So if you love someone, tell them you love them, and give them a rose.”

“I feel sad inside, but I feel angry, and I wanted to send this message of solidarity.”
