Trio of Women Singing Chilling Rendition of ‘Hallelujah’
Three women put their stunning voices on full display during a terrific performance of a beloved song from the 1980s.
Music is a very powerful medium in which to impart messages, ideas and feelings. Through its notes, chords, beats, music can cause listeners and performers to experience a whole host of emotions.
A clip posted on YouTube shows three women entering the stage, all wearing very similar, yet beautiful white dresses, as an orchestra plays the opening notes to Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” Moments after arriving on stage, the three women – Carmen Monarcha, Carla Maffioletti and Mirusia Louwerse – begin belting out the lyrics to the song, according to the video’s description.
The three women sound outstanding as they sing to the massive crowd, who thoroughly enjoy the magnificent sounds coming from the stage. There are a few instances throughout the clip in which audience members are caught singing along, swaying and even dancing to the sweet music.
The song's lyrics, released in 1984, mention and allude to several central figures from the Bible. The song’s opening verse references David, a lowly shepherd who would go on to become king of Israel. “David played, and it pleased the Lord.”
In the opening lines of the second verse, the lyrics also reference the passages in 2 Samuel 11, when David spotted Bathsheba bathing one evening.
“You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew her”
A few lines later and the lyrics hint at Samson and Delilah, specifically when she cut his hair in the Old Testament book of Judges.
“She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and cut your hair”
Everyone on stage and all the people who make up the enormous audience are enjoying the show-stopping and dazzling performance of the song.
Psalm 135:3 “Praise the Lord; for the Lord is good: sing praises to his name; for it is pleasant.”
