K.D. Lang sung Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, which was one of my favourite parts of the opening ceremonies. What a voice this woman has! Lang also sang it when Cohen was being inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2006.
Of that rendition, Cohen’s partner, singer Anjani Thomas, said: “After hearing K.D. Lang perform that song at the Canadian Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in 2006 we looked at each other and said, “Well, I think we can lay that song to rest now! It’s really been done to its ultimate blissful state of perfection.” I couldn’t agree more, enjoy!
