Timberlake – Morris Collaboration ‘Hallelujah’ for Hope for Haiti TV Telethon

As two of the more charitable celebrities in Hollywood now, young artists Justin Timberlake and Matt Morris join forces to perform a moving rendition of the Leonardo Cohen hit entitled ‘Hallelujah’. The pair was just one of the many big names in the music scene who selected to present cover songs for this one of a kind musical event. The songs selected for this fund-raising concert suited the theme of hope and courage against adversity, as well as comfort for those who were and continue to be challenged by the aftermath of the Haiti Earthquake.

Like most of the musicians who came to grace the event, their song number was rendered live and acoustic. Both provided vocals and back up while they played the instruments to this soulful melody. Justin Timberlake played the ivory and ebony while Matt Morris strummed his guitar. Hallelujah, which was originally written and performed by Leonardo Cohen, has been sung again and again since its release by almost 200 artists worldwide, in its original tongue and in various languages. Timberlake and Morris now join the ranks of Bob Dylan, John Cole and Rufus Wainwright, in having performed this very spiritual and deeply touching composition.

Timberlake and Morris are known to be friends and have worked together in the past. Both were stars of the 90s show ‘The Mickey Mouse Club.’

Hope for Haiti Now TV Telethon is organized by the UN ‘Messenger of Peace’ George Clooney. Acting on the grounds of providing hope and aid for the Haiti Earthquake victims, the actor-activist called out to his peers in showbiz towards a concerted effort. It was executed via a two hour telethon, with a musical line up like no other. The profits earned by the show and its consecutive recordings will be given to humanitarian based operations in the grief-struck Haiti.

    It seems like Justin Timberlake is attempting to display that his and Jessica Biel’s relationship is going well. I do feel he appeared happier with his ex – Cameron Diaz though.
