“Hallelujah” is one of the most beloved songs on the planet. Originally written and performed by Leonard Cohen in 1984 for his album “Various Positions”, the song rose to prominence after it was covered by John Cale. Inspired by Cale’s version, Jeff Buckley then went on to record one of the most acclaimed versions of “Hallelujah” in 1994.
