LDS Artist Creates Powerful Version of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" That Focuses on Christ

LDS pianist Garth Smith recently created this beautiful version of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," one that focuses on our Savior, Jesus Christ. The video also features Lauren Sullivan on vocals, with Becky Willard as background vocals, and lyrics by Hailey Isaacson Buehler and Dennis Isaacson.

On Facebook, Garth Smith wrote,"'Heaven's Hallelujah' starts with Cohen's 'Broken Hallelujah' as we deal with the trials and setbacks of this life. The song then elevates the listener to a 'Hopeful Hallelujah' as we realize that Christ brings us a higher purpose to life. As we recognize that Christ's atonement will raise us from the grave, the song progresses to a 'Praiseful Hallelujah.' The song then reaches the climax with an eternal expression of 'Endless Hallelujah' in the presence of the Savior as we cross to the other side and experience the infinite love of Christ for us."
