A Cappella, Hallelujah
Pentatonix won the third season of The Sing-Off, a singing competition of a capella groups. They met for the first time the day before auditions for the show. I love this performance of one of my favorite songs, written by Leonard Cohen about 1984. I do find it strange that the song has somehow become a religious anthem for many American christian singers and choirs. I wonder if they have ever listened to the words, which have very earthly and earthy context.
