Young Street Busker Draws A Crowd With 'Hallelujah' Cover

A young street busker left the crowd in awe with his incredible rendition of ‘Hallelujah.’


Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ is one of the most popular songs of all time. The powerful song was originally released in 1984, but it wasn’t until Jeff Buckley released the song on his 1994 album, ‘Grace’ that the song really started to gain momentum.

Since that time, it’s become a worldwide phenomenon and truly cemented itself in music history. Over the years, many artists have covered the tune, which sounds like a perfect blend of a rock ballad and a gospel song.

“Well I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
Well it goes like this

The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah”

Today, young Ross Anderson is putting his own spin on this iconic song while performing on the streets in Glasgow. As you listen to him belt out these famous words, you start to wonder why Ross isn’t performing in arenas. He is truly a talented vocalist.

One viewer commented, “That nearly made me cry. Beautiful. I couldn't believe people were just walking past you.” And I have to agree with that comment. A performance like this is one that will stop you right in your tracks. Who else wants to see more from this young man in the future? I know I sure do!
