Canadians weren’t the only ones who felt the impact of the tragic Humboldt Broncos bus crash.
British singer Rod Stewart honoured the 15 young souls that were lost after the Broncos’ team bus was “T-boned” by a semi-truck on April 6.
“I’m in Canada and they’re your kids. And my son plays hockey in this area [and] has done all those journeys,” said Stewart during his concert in Calgary on Sunday. “It just brought home to me how quick life can end.”
Stewart, 73, then performed his cover of the iconic Impressions song “People Get Ready”.
After hitting the final note, Stewart shared a photo of his hockey-playing son on the big screen. “That’s my boy,” Stewart said proudly.
Hundreds, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe, attended a vigil at the Broncos crash site on Sunday.
