Irish Catholic Priest Surprises Wedding Couple With AMAZING Version Of ‘Hallelujah’ [VIDEO]

Wow, if you like me are not one of the 23 million people who have watched this video yet, get ready to be impressed. Everyone knows that at Mass the father will often lead the church in songs and hymns and sometimes if you are lucky their singing isn’t really that bad. What Father Ray Kelly brought to the wedding of Chris and Leah O’Kane however is more like the stuff you’d find on “X Factor”.

In interviews that have followed the posting of this video which has gone extremely viral, Father Kelly has said that he sort of joked with the bride at rehearsal that he may even sing a little song for the couple himself, and that she said sure but didn’t seem to think much of it.

Now to be fair, as far as I can tell Father Kelly’s singing prowess and beautiful voice has not been a secret he has indeed even recorded a few albums, but I think it was in this song, and in this moment that he really shined. His coy smiles, and slow building towards the climax of the song  in the foreground of this extremely beautiful and traditional Catholic Church is truly priceless.

I know I truly enjoyed it and if I ever get invited to a ceremony at his church I will be sure that I attend, perhaps he will bring out some classic Elvis that day. Enjoy this wonderful moment in the start of a life together for this young couple and if you like it as much as I did, share it with your friends.
