Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah is one of those tunes that you know will stick around for many years. After such a variety of spreads by different artists, so far it was just the first that gave me chills each time I heard it. Till now.
It takes 1500 voices singing as one to bring back that sentiment you had the first occasion when you heard this melody, but oh my God, does it sound epic. The coordinators of Luminato Festival in Toronto united 1500 artists who joined Rufus Wainwright in this exceptional interpretation and it will overwhelm you.
