RIP Leonard Cohen – level 3

16-11-2016 07:00

Legendary singer, songwriter and poet, Leonard Cohen, died at the age of 82. Dubbed as one of music’s most revered and prolific visionaries, his most famous song “Hallelujah” has been covered by the likes of Jeff Buckley and Bono.

Following the announcement of the Canadian’s death via Facebook, thousands of tributes flooded in with someone calling him the greatest wordsmith of all time.

In spite of his success and vast catalogue of music, Leonard Cohen rarely made it into the charts. Just last month, he released his 14th studio album “You Want It Darker”.

Difficult words: dubbed (nicknamed, called), revered (respected), prolific (producing many works), likes (examples of something), tribute (words of respect), wordsmith (a skilled user of words).
