Priest Breaks Usual Protocol During Wedding, Sings Unique Version Of Hallelujah That Surprised Everyone

A few years ago, a small town priest from Ireland became an Internet phenomenon after the footage of a wedding ceremony he officiated was uploaded to YouTube.

Instead of the usual “Dearly beloved”, Father Ray started singing Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”. I recognized the song from the beginning, but it’s the lyrics you want to pay attention to. He arranged a poem written by a 10-year-old girl from Enniskillen, Northern Ireland to the popular music and the result couldn’t have been more perfect.

It’s one of those videos you’re going to come back to even years from now and it’s absolutely worth it.
