In honor of Leonard Cohen’s Birthday, here’s a Cover of “Hallelujah” everyone should Hear.

Leonard Cohen’s birthday is September 21st.

He would’ve been turning 85 if he were still alive.

To say that Cohen left a legacy doesn’t even really do him justice. His entire musical career left a lasting impact—and, in particular, his endlessly, eternally popular song “Hallelujah.”

Allie Sherlock is a young, Irish singer/guitarist whose cover of “Hallelujah” has been viewed more than three million times.

To be honest, I’m not a big fan of most covers of this song. Maybe it’s because it’s overdone, or maybe it’s just a tough song to get right.

But this cover is sweet and lovely and unexpected.
