The beautiful and inspiring song "Hallelujah" written by Leonard Cohen in 1984 which has seen many cover versions, the most popular done by Jeff Buckley in 1994, is being magically resurrected by this quartet of four fabulous Norwegian singers who sings in this order:  Espen Lind (on guitar), Askil Holm, Alejandro Fuentes, Kurt Nilsen (World Idol).

i heard there was a secret chord
that David played and it pleased the Lord
but you don't really care for music, do you?
well it goes like this the fourth, the fifth
the minor fall and the major lift
the baffled King composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah...

well your faith was strong but you needed proof
you saw her bathing on the roof
her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
she tied you to her kitchen chair
she broke your throne and she cut your hair
and from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah...

well, maybe there's a god above
but all i've ever learned from love
was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
it's not a cry that you hear at night
it's not somebody who's seen the light
it's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah...
