Last night in South Carolina, Paul McCartney dedicated a song to the victims of last week’s mass shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. “This next song we would like to dedicate to all the people in Charleston," said McCartney. "We show how solid we are with them after they’ve been through this tragedy. We pray that people of all colors will be able to live together in peace and harmony.” The music legend then played a moving rendition of the 1970 Beatles song “The Long and Winding Road," which you can see in a fan-shot video below:
