Father and daughter sing duet cover of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah to share some peace in a distraught world, and it wowed thousands!
Mat and Savanna Shaw, who both love singing, shared their beautiful rendition of Hallelujah on YouTube. It said in the caption, “There is just something special about this song it calms a troubled heart. It reminds us that even though things seem so chaotic, we can still find so many reasons to proclaim, ‘Hallelujah’.”
A Hallelujah Amidst Trouble
Apparently, the father and daughter wanted to share some peace amidst the world’s trouble today. Through their music, both hope to uplift and inspire people. In addition, musician Stephen Nelson joined them in the cover while playing the piano.
“10 years ago we met Stephen Nelson at one of Savanna’s voice recitals. He sang Hallelujah that night while accompanying himself on the piano. It was mesmerizing and absolutely unforgettable. That was one of the last times he sang publicly for almost 10 years. It has been a long road back, and we are so proud of his courage,” further revealed the caption.
In the video, Savanna sang the first verse:
I’d 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, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Then the talented father-daughter duo sang together with the chorus.
Mat, Savanna, and Nelson did an excellent job with their rendition. It has such a great arrangement, harmony, and performance—no wonder the video is well-received by fans and reached almost 200,000 views in just days.
Listen to their beautiful version and experience the calming effect of their music. The song truly is relevant during these trying times.
