“I sing his songs to come to terms with the loss I feel in my heart every day and to keep him alive and well here in his beautiful body of work.” Perla Batalla Performs Leonard Cohen’s So Long, Marianne & Famous Blue Raincoat

I sing his songs to come to terms with the loss I feel in my heart every day and to keep him alive and well here in his beautiful body of work. Thank you Leonard Cohen for leaving these songs behind and for encouraging me to sing them. Under the moon and the stars and the voices rising in song (Hallelujah), we all felt it…your presence and peace, for a moment.
