The Power of Singing, part 2

Here is an update from Colby Itkowitz on the Atlanta Homeward Choir’s trip to Washington, DC, where they sang at the Lincoln Memorial and at the White House. Itkowitz writes: “Suddenly these men, who for most of their days feel invisible, were seen.”

Homeless singers achieve their dream by singing at White House, Lincoln Memorial

At the Lincoln Memorial the men performed Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah. Its lyrics end this way:

I did my best, it wasn’t much
I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah
