Hallelujah is one of the most famous and beloved songs in the world. It was first written and recorded by Canadian artist, Leonard Cohen, in the year 1984. The song didn’t get much popularity initially, but it all changed when John Cale and Jeff Buckley made their covers. Over the years, many artists have sung their own version of the hit.

This beautiful cover was released in Christmas 2015. According to Stirling, it was kind of like a gift for her fans. She says, “I’ve realized that a lot of times that I fail to see the beauty that is in the moments and the people that surround me every single day. Making this video was a really humbling experience and it honestly reminded me of a time when I honestly felt like no one saw the beauty in me.”
