Hallelujah at the olympics

I am watching the figure skating competition at the Olympics in South Korea. And a Chinese couple had a beautiful performance on the music of Hallelujah by K.D. Lang :D

Must be worth a medal !

Dave Skretta, “Olympic figure skating unveils new, modern soundtrack”in the Washington Post, 2/13/18

. . . Jeff Buckley’s popular version of the Leonard Cohen song “Hallelujah” will make an appearance, but so will two covers by K.D. Lang , including the one chosen by pairs favorites Han Cong and Sui Wenjing.
