Neil Diamond Surprises Red Sox Fans With ‘Sweet Caroline’

Neil Diamond has a big heart.

The legendary entertainer flew into Boston and worked up the idea all of his own accord, asking if he could serenade Fenway Park with a live performance of his classic “Sweet Caroline.”

Sweet Caroline is the unofficial anthem of the team and it is played during every home-game during the eighth inning, a tradition since 2002.

An appropriate sentiment for a city reeling from the Boston Marathon bombings.

The 72-year-old composer and singer decided to deliver the message in person.

“What resonates for me tonight is the way music can offer comfort to people in times of joy or sorrow,” Diamond said on his way into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony Thursday night in L.A.

“Tonight there are so many people getting awards, and sometimes you sense the questions ‘Why are we doing this? Does this really matter?’ I’ve asked those questions of myself many times.

“And it turns out that it does matter,” he said. “With a tragedy like this, there are no words, but if people can find healing in music, this is the reason I’ve been doing this for the last 50 years. It goes beyond what I ever imagined.”

Diamond, who was inducted into the Rock Hall in 2011, wrote the song in 1969 with President John F. Kennedy’s daughter Caroline Kennedy as his inspiration.
