During this live recording of “Hallelujah,” solo artist McKenna Breinholt pairs up with the Cinematic Pop Orchestra and Choir to give an unforgettable performance. Their rendition of the classic song is so powerful, it is sure to take your breath away!
There are many different versions of Leonard Cohen’s song, “Hallelujah,” yet this is arguably one of the most memorable. The performance took place on June 9, 2015 at the Mesa Arts Center in Mesa, Arizona. McKenna, who is just 16-years-old, is accompanied by an entire orchestra of instruments, as well as a full-choir. The song begins with the soft sounds of the musicians playing together. Then, when the young woman joins in…. get ready for goosebumps! Her voice is so beautiful and angelic, that it’s easy to see why she was chosen as the group’s songstress.
While McKenna on her own sings the lyrics perfectly, the addition of the choir is absolutely stunning. The auditorium is filled with so much heart and soul from so many different artists, that it really is quite moving. During the performance, they even sing the final verse of the song that is often left out… Even if you believe that you already have a favorite version of “Hallelujah,” get ready, because this one may move up to the top of your list!
