One of the most amazing parts about being human is having the ability to make and appreciate music. It’s one of the traits that make us unique, though many people will argue that their pets and other animals are capable of similar abilities.

But there’s no denying that singing and composing are incredible feats only the human brain can perform. Some songs we hear on the radio or in the street are so haunting they seem otherworldly. They are capable of making us feel emotions we didn’t know are possible!

One of those songs is Pentatonix’s cover of “Hallelujah.” The song has stood the test of time, and is known across generations.

It’s one of those songs people instantly recognize and love.

While the song is a classic in its own right, the a cappella group gave it quite the dramatic edge. The singers’ voices meld perfectly to make a grandiose, haunting, and moving song.

The video for the song, featured on their newest album, is simple yet effective in driving home the song’s effect. Set in a vast and barren landscape, with mountains and the sunset in the background, the singers walk forward to form a line in front of the camera for the grand finale.

Watch the video, and you’ll surely be entranced by the visuals and the music alike.
