Avi, Scott, Kirstin, Kevin en Mitch vormen in 2011 de groep Pentatonix en winnen de talentenjacht The Sing Off, waarmee ze niet alleen 180.000 euro winnen maar ook een platendeal bij Sony. De groep ontleent de naam aan de pentatonische schaal – een muziekindeling met vijf noten per octaaf.

Met Little Drummer Boy, Did You Know? en Can’t Sleep Love hebben ze inmiddels drie hits weten te scoren in de Billboard Hot 100. Ook hebben ze inmiddels twee Grammy Awards in de wacht weten te slepen.


In 2016 brengen ze met A Pentatonix Christmas hun vierde studioalbum uit. Daarop staat ook een cover van Hallelujah, origineel van Leonard Cohen.

Songtekst

I heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do ya
Well, it goes like this: the forth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well, your faith was strong, but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to the kitchen chair
She broke your thrown and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Baby, I've been here before
I've seen this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew ya
And I've seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not a victory march (A victory march)
It's a cold and it's a very broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe there's a God above
But all I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya
And it's not a cry that you hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
