Last night I attended Leonard Cohen's performance at Radio City Music Hall. It is difficult to put the experience into words! The concert had a surreal, heart purfiying, graceful feeling . . . Leonard Cohen is the man born with the gift of a golden voice! . . . So powerful, joyous, humble, and honest. How many mornings had I spent listening to his songs? How many nights had I spent reading his poems? I felt as if I had been waiting to be in the presence of this artist my entire life, and memories of friends who shared this music with me, drifted across my mind like sunlit clouds . . .
I'd like to share this video from Radio City Music Hall, 5/17/09 (I was there!) of Leonard Cohen's performance of "Hallelujah." I've told the truth, I did not come to New York City to fool you . . .
