Gwyn Hughes Jones Pays Tribute to Late Footballer Gary Speed

Tenor Tribute: Gwyn Hughes Jones
"Newcastle United fans paid an emotional tribute to former player Gary Speed. Welsh opera singer Gwyn Hughes Jones led the fans in a rendition of "Bread of Heaven" before the kick off in their home tie against Swansea. He was joined in the centre circle by members of Speed's family and former Newcastle striker Alan Shearer. The song was followed by a minute's applause and fans in the East Stand held up cards which picked out Speed's number 11 shirt from his Tyneside days. As well as the applause, fans chanted Speed's name. On the 11th minute of the game, fans chanted his name again and waved their black and white scarves. The 42-year-old was found hanged at his home in Cheshire last month." [Source]
