One of my favorite singers, Yasmin Levy - who is reviving ancient Jewish LADINO music - has recorded a version of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah.
It is idiosyncratic and is as mesmerizing as it is beautiful.
If anything, it is a tribute to Leonard Cohen to his unique poetic style.
I leave you a sample here.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0K8M7QGU ... re=related

If I may be so humble to provide this as a belated birthday gift to the most important and influential musician of our time.
May it be his will to provide you with a long life and health.
Too all of you - my warmest regards.
