Emotional Crowd Sings 'Ave Maria' Outside Notre Dame as it Burns

Emotions ran high around the world today as the legendary Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris burn uncontrollably for hours (see footage below)

The damage to the building, which means so much to so many, is extensive

From Thrillist:

The brief clip, captured and posted to Twitter by Spanish journalist Ignacio Gil, shows a small crowd of stunned and teary-eyed people standing on Rue St Julien le Pauvre just across from Notre Dame singing "Ave Maria" in French. It's a fittingly solemn scene that seems to distill the sense of heartbreak and loss that many around the world are feeling watching footage of the historic site burn.
