I was watching the Opening Ceremony last night while I was doing some photoshop on one of the roughly one hundred images that I just scanned. I was mostly just listening while I worked. Until k.d. lang started singing.
I'm not a k.d. lang fan at all, but when she started singing "Hallelujah", first, I didn't know who it was, then when I looked up, I couldn't believe who it was. I was blown away. Hers might be my favorite version of the song.
I wanted to post it here, but the International Olympic Committee apparently doesn't like to share, and several posted videos on youtube had already been taken down this morning. I tried the nbc website, but my iBook apparently can't handle the new player that you're required to have in order to view any of the site's content.
I highly encourage you to check it out if you can find it.
