Listen to 1500 people singing Leonard Cohen’s “Hallellujah”

Daniel Esparza - published on 07/06/16

The members of “Choir! Choir! Choir!” gather with Rufus Wainwright to sing one of the most beloved songs of the Canadian singer, songwriter, novelist and poet

Daveed Goldman and Nobu Adilman (AKA “DaBu”) started “Choir! Choir! Choir!” as a weekly drop-in, no-commitment singing event in February 2011, in Toronto, Canada. A few years later, they’re growing strong — they meet twice a week and welcome anyone who likes to sing new arrangements of pop songs.

Here, they gather at the Hearn Generating Station in Toronto, with Rufus Wainwright leading the choir, singing Cohen’s best loved and most frequently covered song. Hallellujah!
