EDITOR’S NOTE (Nick Stamatakis). We all have heard this beautiful song, Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen.  But most of us do not know the complicated story behind it and the many versions it went through before reaching the fantastic beauty of Lucy Thomas’s performance (below). In the second video same performance with lyrics… What an amazing voice and what a beautiful technique, colorful and versatile!  Enjoy the music and, in the third video below, learn about the many versions of the song that finally became among the top ten hits of all time…



  1. Oh my, I just am amazed at how this song evolved. Thank you so much for sharing the history as well as the beautiful renditions of Hallelujah with your readers.
