What is your favorite wedding song? Does this version of "Hallelujah" top your list? Tell us in the comment section below.


Hearts frozen from the nasty winter will thaw at the holy sounds from the latest viral video out of Northern Ireland.

Priest Ray Kelly surprised a wedding couple with a unique rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah." The video has been seen more than 25 million times on YouTube.

Kelly told BBC Radio that he often sings at weddings and funerals, but it was a surprise for the couple who weren't local to the area.

Beautiful melody. Original lyrics rather dark and confusing. Priest made it special by creating unique lyrics for the couple. Google Hallelujah by original artist Leonard Cohen, or my favorite version by Jeff Buckley. Heard it the first time watching The West Wing when Mark Harmons character was killed. Beautiful every time.

I am 79 years old and have some health problems but when I feel sorry for myself I watch this video and sit and cry and feel so much better. I have just watched it for the fourth time in a row.
