Hallelujah – Pentatonix Cappella Cover
Heavenly, unmatchable harmonies, simply peaceful enough to knock you down. When listening to this version of the legendary singer/songwriter Leonard Cohen who passed away on 7th Nov 2016, it’s easy to forget that the only instruments the group is using are their mouths and that’s it!
The newly-released album A Pentatonix Christmas, while singing the iconic song “Hallelujah,” perfectly enfolding the melodious voices of the band members Kirstin Maldonado, stealing the thunder Kevin Olusola (the best beat boxer & percussion), Mitch Grassi (holy freak his angelic voice) adore it, Avi Kaplan and Scott Hoying. The team of 5 artist with unique voice combination has created a stellar piece to play on repeat mode and no wonder has crossed 5million viewership.
More than 30years after releasing this signature song Hallelujah, it finally hits the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart now. The Enduring legend, Leonard Cohen’s complex and amazing lyrics of Hallelujah will definitely strike and make you want to know more about it (WIKI).
Drawing reference to the biblical well known context and the intricate connection between God and mankind. It’s a song about failure, a song about things not working out. Both repenting and seeking divine favor after sin.
There’s a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn’t matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah
Something about the lyrics which prepares you for a high and low ascend, beforehand
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Christmas or Christmas Day is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, observed most commonly on December 25 as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world.
In several countries, celebrating Christmas starts from the beginning of advent (liturgical catholic calendar) with gift-giving and sharing a traditional meal with the family. Most Christmas carols and songs are released before advent. And the new Pentatonix Christmas album would be perfect this Christmas.
