This is possibly the most wonderful video I’ve seen on Facebook…. bar none. It helps that I love the song but have a listen to this fabulous priest and see what he did with it. Just wonderful.
A priest has stunned wedding guests at the end of a ceremony with a pitch-perfect version of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah.
The video of Fr Ray Kelly’s unique version of the often-covered song was filmed at the weekend and has been watched on YouTube more than 2.7 million times in the space of four days.
The parish priest of Oldcastle, County Meath, told BBC Radio Ulster’s Talkback programme that the couple had no idea what was going to happen.
Thanks to the BBC for the video.
