Walk on, walk on. With hope in your heart and you’ll never walk alone.

 

Global (29 March 2020) – Luke Evans, a Welsh actor well known for his roles in Dracula Untold and Beauty and the Beast, is giving the internet all the feels with his emotional rendition of “You’ll Never Walk Alone”.

Evans began his career on the stage, performing in many of London’s West End productions such as Rent, Miss Saigon, and Piaf before making his film breakthrough in the Clash of the Titans 2010 remake.

And now the talented performer is singing the song to raise the world’s spirits!

“You’ll Never Walk Alone” has rapidly become the world-wide anthem to show support for and encouragement to medical staff, first responders, those impacted by, under restrictions or in quarantine because of the 2019-20 coronavirus pandemic.

But the song was originally a show tune from the 1945 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Carousel. In the second act of the musical, Nettie Fowler, the cousin of the protagonist Julie Jordan, sings “You’ll Never Walk Alone” to comfort and encourage Julie when her husband, Billy Bigelow, the male lead, falls on his knife and dies after a failed robbery attempt. It is reprised in the final scene to encourage a graduation class of which Louise (Billy and Julie’s daughter) is a member. The now invisible Billy, who has been granted the chance to return to Earth for one day in order to redeem himself, watches the ceremony and is able to silently motivate the unhappy Louise to join in the song.

The song is also sung at association football clubs around the world, where it is performed by a massed chorus of supporters on matchday; this tradition developed at Liverpool F.C. after the chart success of the 1963 single of the song by the local Liverpool group Gerry and the Pacemakers.

“A song to raise your spirits. Dedicated to all the people keeping us safe, fed, protected, alive!!

We can’t do this without us all working together and considering our fellow man and woman. We can get through it.

We will learn. We will be grateful. We will be kinder. We can win. We can all be.” – Luke Evans

Lyrics:

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark

At the end of a storm
There’s a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown

Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone

You’ll never walk alone

Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone

You’ll never walk alone
