Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' with new Easter lyrics

alisandeMay 3, 2011

A lovely singer, Kelly Mooney, rewrote Leonard Cohen's famous "Hallelujah" with lyrics taken from the story of Easter. I love this video, in which she sings the song accompanied by a girl choir. Religious or not, everyone who likes the song will enjoy this version, I think.

Hallelujah

I ddn't know who wrote it but I loved KD Lang's version at the opening of the Olympics last year. I listened to KD's version last week and just finally got it out of my head. Now it's back LOL!!

Thanks for sharing this. I would have never seen it, and it was just fantastic.

After I post this I'm going to go listen to the Easter version. Just wanted to add my 2 cents. I adore this song, but the hands down best version to me is the one by Bon Jovi. The voice, the music, is perfection. He slowed it down in his version and the music is just mesmerizing. I listen to it all the time. Love it. I hope the link I posted works. It's Bon Jovi's version on you tube.

Alisande, That was breathtakingly beautiful! Thank you. As a practicing Catholic I truly appreciated it. It made me cry.

Katlan, I'd never heard Bon Jovi's version--in fact, I didn't know it existed. It's wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing.

I'm glad you all liked Kelly Mooney's video.

I love the song, but had no idea what the lyrics were, so I googled to find them. Very interesting!

Then I tried to find the Kelly Mooney version and I can not. Anybody know them, or where I can find them?

TIA

Thanks. That sure is an obscure web site. Every where Google sent me I only found the video.

I like KM's lyrics better.
