Only a handful of people have done justice in covering the magnificent track “Hallelujah” by the legendary Leonard Cohen. At 2016 Emmy Awards Tori Kelly did a pitch-perfect rendition of the song ‘In Memoriam’ segment that honored the industry legends who passed away during the last year. And it is accurate to say that Tori Kelly did an amazing work in setting the mood to pay tribute to these legends.
Watch Tori Kelly Cover “Hallelujah” Acoustically
Well, I heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
Well it goes like this:
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
It’s a song that has been covered and recovered by some of the greatest artists of the past decades and it was an appropriate track to remember the people such as Gary Shandling, Kathy Fortine and even sports legends like Mohammed Ali. Tori Kelly sang “Hallelujah” in the most emotional tone as the pictures of the former actors, comedians, TV personalities and even sports legends were shown on the big screen.
All eyes were on Tori Kelly as she did an amazing vocal work covering the epic ballad.
