“Hallelujah” is one song that needs no introduction. Written and originally recorded by the late Leonard Cohen, “Hallelujah” has since gone on to become one of the most beloved songs in the world.

Its inclusion in the 2001 animated film Shrek is a huge reason why it is so popular. Today, there are over 300 known recorded versions of the song.

Renowned Italian opera singer Andrea Bocelli shared his own version of the song during his holiday concert on December 12. He performed from the Teatro Regio di Parma opera house in Italy and sang classic songs such as “White Christmas” and “Amazing Grace.”

Bocelli was joined by his eight-year-old daughter, Virginia, when he covered “Hallelujah.” The two took turns singing the lead and also sang together.

On top of that, Bocelli switched between singing in Italian and English.

We could go on describing the pair’s stunning performance, but words simply can’t do it justice. It’s something you have to witness with your own eyes and ears.

As of this writing, the father-daughter duo’s performance of “Hallelujah” has over 13 million views on YouTube.
