Charlottetown, PEI, singer/songwriter Kelley Mooney will be performing songs from her new spiritual album Still – and other previous hits – at a concert to be held on Friday, Nov. 13, at St. John’s United Church, 75 Alma St., Moncton.

Kelley Mooney headshotShe is best known for her Easter version of Leonard Cohen’s classic Hallelujah and will be performing that song and others from her current album. In 2006, her parish priest requested Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah for Easter mass. While Cohen’s lyrics are brilliant, Kelley decided to write verses to reflect the Easter story. Her version has been viewed more than 11 million times on YouTube and GodTube combined, and was ranked on two Billboard charts.

Mooney’s current album, Still, came about as a result of a serious illness – ulcerative colitis – which saw her hospitalized for nine weeks, including two major surgeries and a recovery of more than seven months before returning to work. Her experience led her to record a gospel album which includes standard gospel songs such as I Surrender All, Amazing Grace, and How Great Thou Art, together with original songs about her illness and other personal issues. There is a story behind almost every song — and they can be found at Her first album, Tomorrow, won the 2012 Music PEI Country Recording of the Year (it includes Hallelujah) and has been on the CD Baby top sellers’ list since May 2014. Still was recently added to that list.
