Kelly Mooney’s ‘Hallelujah’ version beautifully displays the story of Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. Kelly, a singer-songwriter has been performing since the age of 5.
One day her Parish Priest asked her to sing ‘Hallelujah’ for Easter Mass. She was nervous but she accepted the challenge. After listening to the song many times, she realized that the original lyrics of the song did not match with the story of Easter at all. So she decided to re-write the lyrics of the song to share the real message of Easter.
The new version of the song moved millions around the world. They asked Kelly to record the song, but she was unable to do so because of copyright. Then she contacted Leonard Cohen’s publishers to obtain the official rights to record the cover of the popular song. Thankfully, she was given a big Yes and now we have this beautiful Easter version of Hallelujah to share each year.
