Paul Newman Tribute from David Letterman

David Letterman at his best, spends almost the first 10 minutes of his show praising and sharing a little about the generous life of Paul Newman. Great stories about beer, Volkswagen vans, and generosity & charity.

It’s a great tribute to someone who gave so much back anyone and everyone. Wish there were more celebrities like Paul Newman in today’s crop of top stars, although with the way media is these days there very well could be…

The song played at the end is Hallelujah originally written and performed by Leonard Coen – the version used here is a cover by Rufus Wainwright.

John Cale John Cale - Scrubs (Original Television Soundtrack) - Hallelujah and Jeff Buckley Jeff Buckley - Grace - Hallelujah have also done covers that are well known.
