The Gift

Here’s Glen Hansard with The Brooklyn Youth Chorus singing Hansard’s new song titled “The Gift.”  Be sure to also check out Hansard and his co-star Marketa Irglova in the movie Once which earned them the Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Falling Slowly” along with 10 other major award nominations.  Great song and great flick.

This gift will last forever
This gift will never let you down
Some things are made from better stuff
This gift is ready to be found
Just you believe it now
