Pentatonix’s New ‘Hallelujah’ Cover Is Chillworthy.

When Pentatonix broke into the music scene in 2011, their incredible skill and A Capella style took the world by storm. Their main body of work is primarily covers of existing songs, medleys and even some original material.The two time Grammy-winning group is solely supported by a mix of tight harmonies and extremely technical beatboxing skills, and the final result is always a treat to hear.

Originally from Arlington, TX, these five friends have been blowing minds ever since their debut on the Sing Off in 2011.

We’ve seen them take classic songs like their smooth “Midnight Train To Georgia”and an incredibly stlyish “Thriller  and turn them into A Capella masterpieces. But the cover in the video below is really something special.

This time around, Pentatonix decided to cover one of the most beautiful songs of all time, Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah.’

“Hallelujah”is one of the most inspired and powerful songs ever written. Cohen actually wrote more than 80 versions of the song before he was satisfied with the outcome. But even then, when the song was released in 1984, it didn’t garner much success.

Over the years however, it shot to popularity, and has now been covered and recorded by more than 3,000 artists, from southern rock stars to this brilliant priest belting it out at a wedding.

Check out the amazing A Capella rendition of this timeless classic in the video below, and share today!
