So what did everyone think of Adam Sandler’s version of “Hallelujah” at the 12/12/12 Sandy benefit concert? Our Twitter feed was full of people hating on it while our Facebook feed was a wall of praise. What does that mean? You decide.
Either way, join the Consulate General of Canada in New York at 92YTribeca on Dec 19 as we launch the newest book from distinguished music critic Alan Light, celebrate Canadian legend Leonard Cohen, pay tribute to the late American singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley and hail Cohen’s canonical “Hallelujah.”
In addition to launching The Holy or the Broken with a reading, interview and audience Q&A with Light, three completely unique live presentations of “Hallelujah” will be performed by Michael Leonhart (Steely Dan, Michael Leonhart & The Avramina 7, Donald Fagen), Peter Kiesewalter (East Village Opera Company, Brooklyn Rundfunk Orkestrata), Greg Naughton (The Sweet Remains) and the remarkable “Hallelujah” House Band.
