An Irish priest surprised a couple by singing a cover of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah during their wedding ceremony. Father Ray Kelly, the parish priest of Oldcastle, County Meath, changed the song’s lyrics to be more suitable for a wedding.
The video below shows Fr Kelly sing as the couple prepares to walk down the aisle. Their friends and family are stunned as the priest belts out lyrics such as, “As Leah is walking up the aisle and Chris looks on and gives a smile” and “They join their hands to show their love and say those most important words I knew-yaaaa … Hallelujah … Hallelujah …”
The clergyman said he is a trained singer and is working on his third album. “I enjoy singing, but I wouldn’t want to do it full time — I love what I’m doing as a priest,” he said. “The way I look at it is, it’s a gift one has, and if you have a gift you use it.”
Personally, I think he is awesome!! if you like this Vid, take a second to share it with your friends
