2016 takes another talented creator from us. According to Cohen's Facebook page, he passed away sometime recently, with no official date or cause of death. Cohen was a talented writer, singer and performer and released an album this year. Most casual music listeners know his song Hallelujah best, most likely the Jeff Buckley version that was in the movie Shrek, but he has an entire library of excellent songs, poetry and performances. Rest in peace, Leonard.
