“Hallelujah” is one of the most iconic songs in the world by Leonard Cohen. This song made over 300 covers. So it became a risky job for artists to pick that song for a cover. To be honest there are so many famous singers delivering some extraordinary versions.
Celtic Thunder is an Irish vocal group that took the responsibility to perform this magnificent song. The group is known for its electric, theatrical-style performances that fans from all around the world go crazy for it. They can do covers for any type of music, just name it and they will do it from soft rock to traditional Celtic folk music and classical crossover.
The vocalists are escorted by Celtic Thunder on tours, they use some high-end visual effects, highly choreographed staging, and dramatic set pieces to spice things up and to make their shows unique and memorable for the fans. Celtic Thunder will always deliver a one-of-a-kind show to the audience.
At the beginning of the video, you can see the orchestra begins to play lightly, then Neil Byrne, the main singer, with a magnificent voice starts the song. Straight away all the fans began to applaud the love of the song choice and you can see some of them started crying because of this beautiful song.
In the middle of the song, Emmett Cahill and Keith Harkin tagged along with Neil on stage. Their perfectly-blended harmonies raised the song to another dimension entirely. They seized the beauty and heartbreak of the song superbly.
This group proved that they are just talented and deserve all the fame and attention. They have a gift of compensating a famous song with their unique style. In the end, they always leave us with a moving performance that lasts forever with us.
