Back in 2016, Country music star, Eric Church, performed the ultra iconic “Hallelujah” live at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado during a sold-out show. Under the Colorado moon, Church gave the crowd a performance they would never forget.
Red Rocks Rockin’
The crowd immediately started to go wild once Church began strumming those iconic chords on his guitar. The singer went for a more rock rendition of the song than his usual countrified performances.
“Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord, that David played and it pleased the Lord,” sings Church electrifying the crowd. “But you don’t really care for music, do you?”
With just his guitar and vocals, he took over the venue. As continued playing, the crowd loudly began to sing along with Church. With a spotlight beaming over his head, Church peacefully graced the audience.

Directly following his breathtaking performance, Church walks off stage in a very “mic drop” manner as the crowd loses their minds.
The Famous Melody
Church chose to sing Jeff Buckley’s version of the song which was released as a single in 2007, however, the original “Hallelujah” was released in 1984 by Leonard Cohen. Since it’s release, several different artists have taken on the gospel tune with their own versions.
