The song, written by singer Leonard Cohen from Canada in 1984, was not originally sold. The song “Hallelujah” became known and popular after Jeff Buckley made his ‘remake’ in 1994 on the album Grace. Because it received a good reception “Hallelujah” was released again as a posthumous single in 1997, ten years after jeff Buckley died.
When interviewed in 1988 in Reijkavik-Iceland Leonard Cohen said that in fact he did not want the song to be indicated as a religious song. Because “Hallelujah” which is nicely packaged with spices of this religious story is a story about a couple’s relationship that is no longer harmonious (it could be due to differences in religion/belief)
“Hallelujah” in Hebrew means to praise or pray to God. What’s interesting about this song is not only the story of the relationship of lovers but Leonard Cohen also slipped the story of the Prophet David and Samson or the Prophet Sam’un.
Leonard Cohen, the original songwriter, gives some insight into the lyrics: All Hallelujah that is perfect and broken has the same value. This is the desire to confirm my faith in life, not in a formal religious way but with enthusiasm, with emotion. Pentatonix released this cover as the main single from their second Christmas album, A Pentatonix Christmas.
