Beautiful rendition of “Hallelujah” by Ukrainian mom and daughter

UKRAINE

Karolina Protsenko | Facebook | Fair Use

Cerith Gardiner - published on 04/17/22

This song feels particularly meaningful this Easter season.

Hallelujah, Christ is risen! So start your Easter season by listening to this wonderful performance of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, with young Ukrainian prodigy, Karolina Protsenko, on the violin, and her mother singing by her side.

While the words will be so familiar to you, the sight of the mom-daughter duo from Ukraine performing with such smiles really lifts the hearts, and will hopefully inspire many to find the joy among the hardships they may be facing.

Karolina is actually a young teen who has wowed crowds with her various street performances, garnering millions of followers. Yet, there’s something so fresh and naive about the violinist as she has no qualms about the music carrying her away.

Hopefully, on this most glorious day, Karolina, her mom, her fellow Ukrainians, and all those suffering from the ravages of war, will be able to take comfort from God and proclaim “hallelujah.”
