Watch Pentatonix's rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah". It is awesome



Acapella group, Pentatonix has come out with their version of Leonard Cohen's famous song "Hallelujah".

This song has been sung by so many people but Pentatonix's version has a special twist. The group Pentatonix consists of five vocalists: Avi Kaplan, Scott Hoying, Kirstin Maldonado, Kevin Olusola (Nigerian), and Mitch Grassi. They are all from Arlington, Texas, United States.




This song is from their Christmas Album, "Pentatonix Christmas" released on the 21st of October and available on Apple iTunes

The song "Hallelujah" was released by Leonard Cohen in 1984. It talks about King David, Samson and Delilah in the Bible

Though there are many versions, this is the original lyrics below:

Now I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah


Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
There's a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah
