MusicMonday: Free Downloads, More on that Emmys Song

Emmys In Memoriam Song

On last night's 62nd Annual Emmy Awards, Jewel performed "The Shape of You" -- a song she wrote for a friend who recently passed away from cancer -- as we remembered those in the television industry who died over the past year.

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I like to pay respect to the lives and careers of entertainment figures. Not surprisingly then, of the dozens included in the memoriam, I only missed tweeting about one individual -- producer Joanne Dillon. RIP, all.

For only 99 cents, Jewel's song can be downloaded at here. And thanks to NBC, you can view last night's performance and tribute below.
