If there’s any song sure break even the coldest of hearts, the song at the top of the list is most definitely “Hallelujah.”
Known for pouring immense amounts of emotion into her performances, LeAnn Rimes fights through tears during an ultra emotional rendition of Leonard Cohen‘s masterpiece.
Taking place in part of SiriusXM’s “The Pulse,” the country singer took a heart-wrenching approach to the song, riffing off into a series of tear-jerking “hallelujahs” at the closing of the song. Backed by just an acoustic guitar, Rimes’ powerful voice flawlessly executed even the most difficult notes the song requires.
The legendary Cohen wrote “Hallelujah” back in 1984 at one of the lowest points in his life, the song going on to become a career-defining ballad. Years later, singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley recreated the song and skyrocketed it into fame, inspiring over 300 known versions.
