k.d. Lang's 'Hallelujah' mesmerizes 2010 Winter Olympics audience

kd-lang-olympics-opening-zap2it.jpgCanadian singer k.d.  Lang's version of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" was, for many, the highlight of the opening ceremony (Feb. 12) of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

The web is on fire with searches to see the video and we thought you might enjoy this previous (and more intimate) version of Lang's performance of the moving song. You may recall that Justin Timberlake and Matt Morris recently sang this song  to great effect on "Hope for Haiti Now." You can watch theirs below.

The song was particularly poignant last night considering the tragic death of 21-year-old Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili during a trial run just hours earlier.
