Hallelujah: kd lang wows the Olympics

kd singing "Hallelujah" was the highlight of the Olympics opening ceremony. She sounded and looked great!

The Grammy-winning singer came out as a lesbian in 1992 and is a champion of LGBT rights. She is a committed Buddhist.

Click for a wonderful video of her singing Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”… it’s spiritual, Biblical, but also contemporary and mysterious.

Absolutely marvelous. Thanks for sharing this. I only caught part of it on TV, so it's great to be able to watch the whole thing.

I posted a link to this kd lang video on my Facebook page, and got the biggest response EVER. So I decided to post it here on the blog, too. These comments are helpful.

Thank you, Trudie and Modern Girl, for letting me know that it’s good for me to share items like this quickly when they arise, even if I don’t have time to write much text to go with it.
