Renee Fleming's very special rendition of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah on BBC's Andrew Marr Show

"America's Beautiful Voice", soprano Renée Fleming appeared on the BBCs Andrew Marr Show this morning. Her rendition of Leonard Cohen's version of Hallelujah was awe inspiring. Sadly the interview was all too short. She spoke about her new album, Dark Hope. This is produced by David Kahne. Dark Hope finds Renee covering songs by Muse, Arcade Fire, The Mars Volta, Death Cab For Cutie, Leonard Cohen, Band Of Horses, amongst others. This is Renee's first foray into rock and pop.

Dark Hope has the following songs

Endlessly (Muse)
No One’s Gonna Love You (Band of Horses)

Today (Jefferson Airplane)
Intervention (Arcade Fire)
With Twilight As My Guide (The Mars Volta)
Mad World (Tears for Fears)
In Your Eyes (Peter Gabriel)
