Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. Please donate today in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. We can't do our work without you. Right now, a generous donor will even TRIPLE your gift, which means it’ll go three times as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

Legendary Singer and Songwriter Leonard Cohen Dies at 82

HeadlineNov 11, 2016

And Leonard Cohen has died at the age of 82 at his home in Los Angeles. The wildly influential singer and songwriter was a force in the music world for more than 50 years. Famous for the songs “Hallelujah,” “Suzanne,” “Dance Me to the End of Love”, “Famous Blue Raincoat” and “Tower of Song,” Cohen was born September 21, 1934, and lived throughout his life in New York City, London, on the Greek island of Hydra and in a monastery east of Los Angeles.

Leonard Cohen: “Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord, that David played, and it pleased the Lord. But you don’t really care for music, do you? It goes like this: The fourth, the fifth. The minor fall, the major lift. The baffled king composing Hallelujah. Hallelujah…Hallelujah…”

The Canadian-born singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen released his final album, “You Want It Darker,” less than a month ago.
