When a group of singers hits a harmony just right, it’s not uncommon for me to break out in chills. One trio, in particular, has the hair standing up on my neck for their absolutely flawless rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”
But these singers don’t have years of experience at their back or decades of professional training… in fact, they’re just kids! The three children were contestants on Germany’s version of “The Voice Kids” in 2014 and when you hear what Patrizia, Simon, and Helena can do, you’ll have goosebumps, too.
The magic begins with Simon’s solo of the iconic tune’s first verse — and his voice is that of an angel. It’s perfectly pitched and incredibly difficult to believe that it’s coming from someone so young.
Soon, Helena joins in at the chorus and the addition of her powerful voice only adds to the song’s perfection.
As the song goes on, Patrizia lends her voice — which has an astounding range, to the mix, and each young performer is given his or her time to shine.
When they all harmonize, it’s a truly breathtaking experience. And the judges take notice. The camera cuts to their faces, who seem to be overcome with awe.
The song is a truly beautiful way to celebrate the approaching holidays and it’s performance you don’t want to miss. Share if you believe song is the best way to spread joy and cheer.
