Leonard Cohen Tribute
- Hallelujah -
Extraordinary Poet and Performer
Leonard Cohen, the Canadian talent who entertained the world for over 50 years, passed away on November 7, 2016. His influence will live on and inspire people for many decades to come.
Cohen considered himself a musician, a singer, a songwriter, a poet, a novelist and a painter. For the rest of us - he was an inspiration. Leonard Cohen's personality shines through this interview about his song "Hallelujah" during an interview in 2010. He reflects on the song, introduced in the 1980's, which has had a "career" of its own.
The book entitled The Holy or The Broken: Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley and the Unlikely Ascent of 'Hallelujah' by Alan Light explores the magic of the song and its continued influence.
Probably best to listen rather than talk about music - right? Below are several versions of his song 'Hallelujah'. Many different ways to share one message. Many other versions are available, including the one by Bob Dylan.
In chronological order of these few - links go to bios of singers and musicians:
K. D. Lang
Choir! Choir! Choir!
And one more - not 'Hallellujah' - but just because it is so beautiful. Played by a member of Pentatonixs - Kevin Olusola. Amazing musical talent ...
