Saturday Night live Music: "Hallelujah"

Last week, our second daughter performed in a musical revue, "That's Entertainment!," put on by the Wichita Children's Theater and Dance Company. She sang this song, and I thought she did wonderfully. I explained after the show about the significance of the song, and Leonard Cohen's influence, and the dozens of great artists who have covered the song--such as K.D. Lang below, who sang perhaps the definitive version of the song--to which she and our oldest daughter, who was with us, could only respond, in essence: "Dad, for people of our generation, this is a Shrek song, end of story." Well, anyway, this is for them.
