aRt & tHeOlOgY: Bill Miller Discussing Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’

June 17, 2014 — Leave a comment

Native American performer, Bill Miller,  gives as close to a sermon as any I’ve heard. bill-miller-press-sm-photoAnecdote – scripture – reflection. Then performs Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’.

There are two major parts to this video. The first is Miller discussing context, including two days hanging out with the late Jeff Buckley, whose own version of the song is now infamous. The second is the performance.

Granted, the quality of the recording is not all that great, but from what the sound system and surrounding acoustics look like, they may not have been able to improve on it.

He definitely delivers, bringing his own style to the song.

Worth all ten minutes.
