Leonard Cohen

(Radio.com) New York's Lincoln Center will honor the late Leonard Cohen, who died in his sleep on November 7. The free event is open to the public and will be held outside on Hearst Plaza on December 5 from noon to 4 p.m., reports Rolling Stone.

Lincoln Center's Programming Department and producer Hal Wilner have designed a program that will not include speakers or live performances. Instead, it will focus on material from the legendary songwriter's body of work, chosen by friends and fans.

Cohen's son, Adam Cohen, wrote a moving tribute to his late father, giving thanks "first for his music which seduced me as a boy, then for his encouragement of my own music and finally for the privilege of being able to make music with him." Read more here.
