On Tuesday we told you there was going to be a Leonard Cohen sing-along tribute at Christie Pits with CHOIR!CHOIR!CHOIR!.

Well, it turns out thousands of you were listening.

In a beautiful and heartfelt tribute, Torontonians gathered together to remember and celebrate the genius of one of Canada’s greatest poets and songwriters.

Here are some of the photos and videos that captured what a special evening it was.
