Singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen has died at the age of 82, according to a post on his official Facebook page (via CNN).
“We have lost one of music’s most revered and prolific visionaries,” the post said.
A highly respected artist known for his poetic and lyrical music, Cohen wrote a number of popular songs including the often-covered “Hallelujah.” His 14th studio album, “You Want It Darker,” was released on October 21.
Apart from his successful musical career, Cohen also wrote novels and numerous collections of poetry.
I have earlier read (without noting the source) that he was a survivor of child sexual abuse.
I loved is style of reading his works.
