11-Yr-Old Kaylee Johnson has gained legions of fans since her recent appearance on “Little Big Shots,” when famous a cappella group Pentatonix joined her in singing a rousing rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”

But what many fans don’t realize is that the little girl was diagnosed at an early age with mild autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. According to her teachers, Kaylee rarely spoke, much less sang, until just recently.

But that all changed last year, not long before she shot to viral fame with a Christmas-themed remake of “Hallelujah” with her choir at Killard House Special School in Northern Ireland.

INSPIRING STORY

With the year’s passing of beloved musician and composer Leonard Cohen, it only seems fitting that his timeless song “Hallelujah” should be going viral once again.

At the Killard House School’s choir concert in Donaghadee, Northern Ireland, young Kaylee Rodgers sang a stunning version of Cohen’s most classic tune with modified lyrics. Kaylee’s voice is soaring and rich, but it’s her story that is perhaps most uplifting.

Kaylee happens to have autism and ADHD, and because she was so shy at school, she had a hard time participating in class.

The principal of Killard House, Colin Millar, explains that she

“wouldn’t really read out in class … so to stand and perform in front of an audience is amazing …

It takes a lot of effort on Kaylee’s part.”

Kaylee’s music teacher, Lloyd Scates, played a large role in helping her find the confidence to sing.

Her mother divulged that “she always loved singing, but it wasn’t until she started at Killard House School that she really came into her own. Mr. Scates is like her safety blanket – he’s amazing.”

Watch the video below to witness Kaylee’s touching transformation.

The lyrics of this modified version were written by contemporary Christian rock band Cloverton.

Alex, Casey, and I wanted to get together to pay our respects to the iconic songwriter and poet Leonard Cohen, who passed away  – and also to show our commitment to maintaining an inclusive and diverse country by raising money for the ACLU, an organization that fights for immigrants’ rights, free speech, criminal law reform and social justice.

Hope you enjoy the song – sending you all our love and best wishes!

~As He Picks Up A Violin, She Begins To Play~

I’ve Never Heard ‘Hallelujah’ Like This Before

You’ve probably heard Leonard Cohen’s timeless song “Hallelujah” thousands of times, but probably never quite like this. Acclaimed violinist Rob Landes teams up with pianist Aubry Pitcher to perform this hauntingly beautiful version of the classic.

Although the piece starts with just one violin and piano, Rob uses a looping pedal to gradually add more violins and create layers of sound with elegance and grace.

~~Hallelujah – Violin Looping Cover~~

ONE TAKE

by Rob Landes and Aubry Pitcher

Rob Landes is an award-winning violinist who started playing the violin at 3 years in Orem, Utah. Born to a large musical family, Rob gave his first solo recital at 10 years old, performed in the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on the Disney Channel with the Disney Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra, and founded a piano trio that performed actively throughout his teenage years.

Rob has won first prize at numerous music competitions and has soloed with the Utah Symphony, Utah Valley Symphony, San Diego Chamber Orchestra, BYU Philharmonic, and BYU Chamber Orchestra. As a first violinist of the BYU Chamber Orchestra, Rob performed in more than twenty cities throughout central and southern Europe, and as concertmaster of the orchestra, gave a concert to a sold-out audience in New York’s Carnegie Hall.

Rob was awarded full scholarships to attend Brigham Young University and Rice University where he earned a Bachelor’s in Music and Master’s in Music, respectively. While studying at Rice, Rob began covering rock and pop music, and upon returning to Salt Lake City after graduation, bought a looper pedal and an amp which he uses to create intricate and stunning arrangements of today and yesterday’s most popular music.

Thank you to Aubry Pitcher for playing piano in this piece!

She is an incredible pianist and friend.

Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah …. “Pentatonix …. “!!

~~November 14, 2016~~ 

COHEN’S HALLELUJAH.

I’ve heard this song before.

Events have come together these past days that have brought it to my mind’s forefront.

I’ll never hear it again without the associated memory of Kate McKinnon playing it on Saturday Night Live as the somber way to end the skits about Hillary Clinton’s run for the presidency.

Here you have a cover by Pentatonix.

Angelika, my oldest grand-daughter, made me aware of this cover today.

Enjoy!

Nothing about Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” – the original version of the song Cohen recorded for his 1984 album “Various Positions” – leads you to conclude that it would go on to become one of pop music’s most durable compositions.

Not the rinky-dink keyboard tone. Not the singer’s low, dry croak. And certainly not the lyric full of stark biblical imagery.

Yet in the years leading up to Cohen’s death this week at age 82, “Hallelujah” attained the kind of pop-cultural saturation we more commonly associate with songs by the likes of Justin Timberlake, to name one star who quickly mourned Cohen’s passing on social media.

“A spirit and soul beyond compare,” Timberlake tweeted.
