Jeff Buckley, who died 15 years ago this year, is the subject of three movies currently being made. The most high profile one so far stars Gossip Girl's Penn Badgley portraying the musician, and this weekend the actor tested out his chops in front of a live audience at Cameo Gallery in Williamsburg. Here he is covering "Lilac Wine"—the audience member who captured the moment says, "His vocal reminded me so much of Jeff Buckley. His guitar playing was a little similar too. I was in awe with this guy’s vocal. It was something very unexpected."

And here's Buckley singing the same song (which was originally written in 1950):
