He Plays “Hallelujah” On Cello And It’s Like Nothing I’ve Heard Before. It Gave Me Chills!
When Leonard Cohen wrote his masterpiece “Halleluiah” I don’t think he intended it to be performed quite like this. However we all know how iconic the song ended up becoming and among the thousands of covers we found on YouTube this one was particularly moving.
Performed by a brilliant 17-year old cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, who was the first black person to be awarded the prestigious The BBC Young Musician of the Year Award, this is the first time we’ve heard the song covered by the classically trained cellist and it’s skin-tinglingly good. I think Mr. Cohen would’ve approved.
