1,500 Strangers Stand In An Abandoned Power Plant And Sing 'Hallelujah' - You Have To Hear This

“Hallelujah” is an amazingly powerful song, especially in a group context. Of interest, Leonard Cohen penned 80 versions of the song before he was satisfied. Surprisingly, when the song was published back in 1984, it did not enjoy much critical success.

Eventually, however, Hallelujah became a popular classic, and this moving tune has been recorded by more than 3,000 artists, from rock stars to a priest at a wedding.

That said, very few performances of Hallelujah have come close to the intensity and energy found in this impromptu choir in Canada’s largest city of Toronto.

Nonprofit organization Choir!Choir!Choir! hosts weekly singing events where anyone who loves music is welcome to attend and join in. Big names, however, often show up. For example, pop stars such as Teagan and Sara have led these C!C!C! choirs in the past. For this event, C!C!C! gathered more than 1,500 people together in an abandoned Toronto power plant. With the world-famous Rufus Wainwright leading, the impromptu chorale blew out Cohen’s Hallelujah in fine style.

Rufus belts out the first verse, but then as the audience joins, a veritable tidal wave of sound is created that will give you chills all over.
