Re: Rufus Wainwright?(D.)
Well, in the movie, I recognized him right away. It was Rufas, singing Hallelujah.
On the soundtrack the song can also be found. With Rufas Singing away. I personally love it. But, I am bias, as I have been a Wainwright fan for a long time.
However, if you rent the movie, it's not rufas who sings the song. And to be honest, I have no idea who it is. It is an older sounding man. With a deeper voice than Rufas.
Rufas has always had a sort of contract with Dreamworks, so that would be why he was singing the song in the first place on the Dreamworks movie, Shrek. Why they changed it for the rental, I have no clue.
