"Hallelujah" For Haiti



Okay, apparently I was one of the few Americans who didn't tune into the Hope For Haiti Now telethon last Friday night. I admit that after my mother called the next day, to rave about Justin Timberlake's version of Leonard Cohen-by-way-of-Jeff Buckley's "Hallelujah," I resisted checking out the video on YouTube. Today, I finally watched. Wow! Timberlake and up-and-comer Matt Morris — who I remember performing with the Bo-Keys at the Cooper-Young Festival a few years back — really did it justice. Watch, listen, and be sure to donate.
