Hallelujah!

If you've never heard the remarkable song by Leonard Cohen, it's a good thing I'm here to save you!

This song is absolutely amazing, but this rendition in particular moves me and gives me insane chills. The group is The Canadian Tenors, and they are one of the most outstanding sounding male groups I've heard in a very, very long time. They sound fantastic individually, but they are heaven when singing in unison!

This particular video that I'm going to share with you came when The Canadian Tenors were guests on The Oprah Winfrey Show. They were talking about musical influences in their lives, and they all mentioned their respect and adoration for Celine Dion, arguably the most successful mainstream Canadian female singer.

Little did they know that Oprah, the woman famous for making people's dreams come true, had a little surprise for them! They thought they were just getting an opportunity to showcase their incredible voices on her large television platform - they had no idea that someone was there that wanted in on the song!

Have a look and a listen, and enjoy the song and the group. They are equally phenomenal.

P.S. - How incredibly attractive is the first guy that sings?!?! His name is Fraser Walters, and he is a cutie! If you want to learn more about them and hear more of their amazing music, please go to their website by clicking here.

Until next time,

We have the same taste in music Miss CW!! I've been playing this song over and over and over for a while now - right after Justin Timberlake performed it with Matt Morris during the Hope for Haiti Now performance. Beautiful, beautiful song. Thanks for sharing!!!

Beautiful rendition, and what an amazing surprise. I love Celine Dion! I was going to mention Justin Timberlake's version, too. I agree with brenleigh - that version blew me away! I even bought the Hope for Haiti album for that one song!

@brenleigh: Yes, ma'am! I have loved the song for awhile, but this version gave me chills! I haven't heard the JT version, but I am definitely going to check that out as soon as I finish typing this comment! LOL!

@The Less Than Domestic Goddess: Celine Dion is amazing! I'm glad you liked the rendition - these guys could sing me the phone book! With two recommendations, I am super excited to hear Justin's version!!! Thanks, y'all!
