Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!Happy Easter! This is my video of my cousin Kelley Mooney singing her approved spiritual lyrical adaptation of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah. It has gone viral on YouTube and is closing in on 300,000 views after hitting 250,000 views just a few days ago!

The video was recorded on June 1, 2010, at the Monument Lefebvre in Memramcook, New Brunswick, Canada. Kelley was a guest performer at a concert by the Chorale Voce dell’ Anima led by Monette Gould. The concert was amazing and Kelley certainly wowed the crowd with Hallelujah, as you can see by the standing ovation and wild applause at the end. Hallelujah was one of three songs that Kelley performed that night. (The other two were solos.)

The audio clip was aired on CBC Radio’s Weekend Mornings with Stan Carew on Easter morning — April 24, 2011, after receiving several requests from listeners.

Thanks to Léandre Bourgeois for the awesome soundtrack that was synched to my video. Sounds so much better than the original sound from my camera!
