A solo violinist gave a moving performance at a vigil for the victims of the Paris terror attacks held in London's Trafalgar Square on Saturday.

The anonymous player emerged from the crowd and played two impromptu pieces, before quickly packing up and disappearing again, according to Mashable, where you can watch a full video of the performance.

He shouted "Vive la France" as the crowd cheered him, Mashable added.
