"Hallelujah" - American Idol Response

Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah is one of my favorite songs of all time. The music and lyrics are so beautiful, clever, eloquent and heart wrenching. Their are so many amazing versions of Hallelujah, with my favorite still being Jeff Buckley's. I remember crying the first time I heard it. This is actually a song I've covered in my life show (you can see a clip of that here if you want: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oC1xKZC7GMo).

When I saw this sung on Wednesday night, I knew this was the song I wanted to do. It's a little challenging to perform this song in such a shortened version, but I was happy with how it came out.

The pianist on this one, Alexander Clough, is a friend of mine who I actually met in a New York subway. He plays jazz at a lot of cool spots in New York City.
