The underground singer

She has been busking at the underground link from Isetan to Tang's -- for the longest time. But she doesn't seem to have aged a bit. Guess that's what passion does to one's face.

She does a great rendition of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah. That never fails to get me digging for my wallet. Not sympathy, but an appreciation for her talent. Wonder how Bird on a Wire would sound like -- through her voice. I have heard her doing Judy Collins' Both Sides Now too. Good.

Actually, there's another guy at the other corner of the undergound. He accompanies himself on the accordion. He's been there for the longest time too. He's not too bad.

But I prefer the lady on the other side :) No offence.

Come Christmas, I hope their suitcases get filled up -- with bucks of appreciation.

Oh, I used to cross this tunnel, but only noticed a guy busking there. Some of the buskers especially the visually challenged are quite talented. Can never figure out how they managed to play the guitar with just the ability to feel and hear..amazing :)

Perhaps the lady only busks on weekends. She is usually at the Wheelock exit towards Tang's. Merry Christmas to you, by the way 😊
