By Amanda Wicks

Losing a poet and artist like Leonard Cohen takes time to process, so not all the tributes, covers and other honors dedicated to the late musician poured in immediately following his death on November 7th.

Keith Urban posted a short video on Facebook today (November 15th), showing him closing out one of his tour shows by performing a snippet of Cohen’s famous (and well covered) song “Hallelujah.” At just over one minute long, Urban played one verse as well as the chorus accompanied only by his acoustic guitar and the crowd singing along. At the end, he thanked everybody and wished them a good night.

On Facebook, to accompany the video, Urban wrote, “RIP Leonard. And thank you for being a vessel of glory on high. – KU.”
