Alliluiya [Hallelujah] is a Russian version of the song that was originally recorded by Leonard Cohen on his 1984 album Various Positions. The Russian version was translated by Leonid Agutin for the Russian TV talent show Golos Detei [The Voice Kids] and the lyrics don’t follow the English, apart from the chorus, but instead thanks God for all of the good things in life and makes the song more appropriate for children to sing. This is a perfectly angelic rendition by Ksenia of this delightful song that she performed on the show Golos Detei. The video was recorded during a solo concert and starts with Ksenia entering the stage alone, singing solo for the first verse. Then, during the first chorus she is joined by 8 of the most adorable, young backing singers you could imagine who join in on the refrains.
