Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” is an iconic song. A modern masterpiece. But I’m always skeptical when I hear someone is going to try and play it. Why? Well, most performers simply don’t do it justice. But there are exceptions. Incomparable exceptions…
Have you heard Lindsey Stirling play before? The young virtuoso simply oozes musicality. And she’s popular, too, with more than 8 million people subscribed to her YouTube channel.
What makes her version of “Hallelujah” so special is that it’s so stripped down. There’s no vocal. It’s just Lindsey playing her violin in a subway station. But believe me, that’s enough. I can’t remember the last time I was this moved. Check out Lindsey’s performance below.
Wow, what a performer! I think everyone needs to hear Lindsey’s magical interpretation of this song. Share if you agree!
