Bringing the story of Jesus and the meaning of Easter into one of the best songs ever written, singer/songwriter Kelley Mooney blessed the world with an unforgettable performance during this special choir concert.
Invited as a special guest to the annual concert of the Chorale Voce dell’Anima, Mooney appeared before the song to express exactly how she was inspired by the story of Easter to rewrite the lyrics to Leonard Cohen‘s magnificent classic, “Hallelujah”.
“At the end of church [the priest] asked if I would sing Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ for Easter Mass,” Mooney explained to the audience. “I went home…and rewrote the words according to the Easter story and Jesus’ journey up to The Cross.”
Not too long afterward, Mooney says, each time she sang her reworked version of this cherished classic, people were asking for a recording of it – so she decided to put it on her upcoming album!
In this one-of-a-kind performance, Mooney and this blessed women’s choir deliver a heart-melting Easter version of “Hallelujah” that will remind y’all of the true meaning of Easter.
