Easter Version Of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah [VIDEO]
After a Sunday service performance at her church, Kelly Mooney was taxed by her Parrish priest to sing Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah for an Easter service.
Not knowing the song Kelly went home and looked up the song and lyrics and although there are a number of biblical references in the original, Kelly felt there was another way to sing the song. Using a missal that told the Easter story she rewrote the song to tell the story of death and resurrection.
See and hear the song here with some help from the Chorale Voce dell’ Anima led by Monette Gould on June 1, 2010, at the Monument Lefebvre in Memramcook, New Brunswick, Canada.
