Out of all the versions of this timeless song, Cetic Thunder's rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" has proven most popular with our audience.
Celtic Thunder, a world renowned Irish singing group, is known around the world for their powerful stage shows and are frequently accompanied by the incredibly talented Celtic Thunder Band.

The men of Celtic Thunder are ready to ring in the holiday season with this special Christmas ‘Hallelujah.’ Countless different artists have performed this beautiful song all over the world, but this incredible rendition is truly like no other. Celtic Thunder is a gifted group of Irish performers known for their opera voices and elaborate productions. Every song they sing truly showcases their incredible talent and the harmonies are even more amazing. The group started out in 2007 and since their debut they have been climbing charts and making a worldwide name for themselves. Over the course of a decade, these 5 men have recorded original songs and popular covers, but I think their Christmas tunes are my absolute favorite. There’s something about hearing those classic Christmas songs performed in such a powerful way that will truly remind you of the real reason for the season. While some people may argue that ‘Hallelujah’ it is not necessarily a Christian song, many feel very moved by it and feel closer to God when they hear it. And when you listen to these talented Irish singers belt out the powerful words, you will understand exactly what I mean. Celtic Thunder truly puts their heart and soul into each and every performance and there’s a reason that this particular number has been viewed over a million times. From the beautiful backdrop to the stunning vocals, this Christmas song is one that you will be listening to all season long. Who else agrees with me?
