Jeff Buckley (November 17, 1966 – May 29, 1997), born in Anaheim, CA as Jeffrey Scott Buckley and raised as Scottie Moorhead, was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist.
Known for his vocal range of 4 octaves and tone quality, Buckley was considered by critics to be one of the most promising artists of his generation after the release of his 1994 debut album Grace. However, at the height of his popularity, Buckley drowned during an evening swim in 1997. His work and style continue to be highly regarded by critics and fellow musicians.

For me there are a few times when a singer so perfectly melds with a song that you can’t imagine it sung by anyone else. And if someone else sings it you only find yourself wanting to hear them sing it. Billy Joel: Piano Man, Elton John:Your Song, Billy Holliday: Strange Fruit, Dylan: Like a Rolling Stone, Lennon:Imagine, McCartney: Blackbird, Garland: Over the Rainbow,

Jeff Buckley: Hallelujah

Its like they hypmotize you.
