Hallelujah is the type of song that, whether played or covered, captures its listeners. It’s soulful melody and lyrical journey set the singer up for success, even if their vocal ability is mediocre. But this rendition by the Cinematic Pop Orchestra and Choir featuring 16 year-old soloist McKenna Breinholt, is far from mediocre.

At 16 years young, Breinholt’s breathy and mature voice is a wonderful fit, accompanied by the intricate layers of sound produced by each section of the live symphony, alike something from a Lord of the Rings Soundtrack.
