Legendary singer-songwriter, Leonard Cohen, passed away last night at the age of 82. The Canadian artist's work spanned over five decades, each highlighted by critically acclaimed and globally beloved works of art. The Quebec native released his debut album, Songs of Leonard Cohen in 1967, while his most recent was this year's You Want It Darker, which was heralded by critics as some of his most honest and moving work to date.
When the "Hallelujah" composer passed away, there was an outpouring of online tributes, coming from some of the most prominent acts in the world. Leaving an undeniable impression on fans everywhere, celebrities took to Twitter to share their memories of the man and his music.
Fans began to create a memorial at the Chelsea Hotel, referenced in his fourth studio album, New Skin for the Old Ceremony.
Even political leaders joined the discussion, including Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau.
For many, the death of the legend was too much in an already emotional week, and a year of great loss in the music community.
There has yet to be any word on an official memorial for the musician, but no doubt his work will live on, as Cohen is one of the most covered artists in music. In the meantime, you can listen to his latest release on all major streaming platforms.
