This is Justin Timberlake and Matt Morris from the concert for Haiti. A beautiful rendition of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah. Here’s some good trivia, apparently Hallelujah is the most covered song ever, it has taken the title from Paul McCartney’s Yesterday. Anyhow, watch – and mostly listen.
I mostly know Justin Timberlake for his acting and comedy, I am not a huge fan of his music. This song reminds me what real singing is about. It’s world away from American Idols screeching, and thank god for that.
(I have a backlog of songs to put out there. So this isn’t really my latest favorite song. But it (and others to come) had good runs as my favorite songs. Close enough.)
