Kelley Mooney’s spiritual lyrical adaptation of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”

UPDATE FROM KELLEY – MARCH 16, 2015: “I’d like to wish everyone a wonderful Easter season full of joy, hope and love. Thank you to everyone for all the comments and for sharing your stories. I just wanted to let you all know that I have a brand new gospel album coming out in June 2015 – “Still” – filled with songs that hold close meaning for me, including How Great Thou Art, I Surrender All, and some originals. If you’d like more information and a sneak peek at one of the songs, please go to my website for further details. Happy Easter!”

BUY KELLEY’S CD – includes Hallelujah:

This is the world video premiere of my cousin Kelley Mooney’s approved spiritual lyrical adaptation of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”. She was accompanied by the Chorale Voce dell’Anima led by Monette Gould on June 1, 2010, at the Monument Lefebvre in Memramcook, New Brunswick, Canada.

Kelley was invited by Monette to be a special guest performer at Chorale Voce dell’Anima annual concert. She performed three songs, one of which was “Hallelujah”.

Thanks to Léandre Bourgeois for the awesome soundtrack that was synched to my video. Sounds so much better than the original sound from my camera!

Thanks to everyone for the tremendously positive reaction to the video, to everyone who’s shared this and given it a second life during the Easter 2014 season! The album version of the single Hallelujah has even hit the Billboard charts!!
