According to the official Facebook page of Leonard Cohen, the renowned singer/songwriter has passed away after a short illness.
“It is with profound sorrow we report that legendary poet, songwriter and artist, Leonard Cohen has passed away.”
The artist who wrote the famous song ‘Hallelujah‘ also had a plethora of other magnificent songs which explore the spoils of love, the qualms with politics and his own personal experience with religion.
Cohen had released ‘You Want it Darker‘ on November 7th, merely three weeks prior to his death.
Cohen is survived by his two children. Adam Cohen and Lorca Cohen
If there is anyone here currently, who is not familiar with Leonard Cohen, let me leave you with a quote.
“Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.”
