Massive crowd of black-clad mourners from all over the country flooded Sanam Luang and nearby side streets as far as the eye could see to sing the royal anthem in a historic assembly in memory of the beloved King Bhumibol Adujyadej who passed away on October 13.

The mass recital of the royal anthem was accompanied by 200-piece orchestra and 150 chorus under the baton of the established music director Somtow Sucharitkul.

 The stage was set at the center of Sanam Luang. The most heartfelt tribute was also filmed by prominent director MC Chatrichalerm Yukol and his 1,300 production crews with 50 cameras, two drones, two cranes and 25 microphones around six prominent locations.

The participants sang in tearful eyes while raising the portraits of His Majesty and banknote bearing his image. The film with footages on His Majesty's royal activities will be shown in theatres and on TV channels next week.
