YouTubers’ “Headphones Have Exploded” Over Pentatonix’s Chilling New Cover of “Hallelujah”

Pentatonix has long been mesmerizing us with their magical voice combination since they debuted in 2011. After winning Season 3 of NBC’s The Sing Off and scoring a contract with Sony, the a capella group’s success has been steadily on the rise.

They have amassed more than 1.5 billion views on YouTube and over 11 million subscribers, but it is their recent release of Leonard Cohen’s 1984 classic “Hallelujah” that is currently sailing off the charts. The official video was posted just three days ago, and it has already been viewed nearly 7 million times. The song is a part of their aPentatonix Christmas album which is now available for purchase.

YouTubers can’t get enough of the latest a cappella sensation that is igniting a wave of tears along with a metaphoric explosion of headphones, as noted by the video’s top-liked comment:


There are over 300 known covers of this popular tune, but you’ve NEVER heard one like this before…
