Pentatonix releases 'Hallelujah' music video that goes viral

Posted October 26

Grammy Award-winning a capella group Pentatonix posted a new music video to YouTube on Friday. The video has garnered nearly 7 million views in the three days since it was released.

The song is one of 11 from the group's album "A Pentatonix Christmas," also released Friday.

Both the album and music video are currently No. 1 on iTunes.

The album release came just in time for the group's Saturday visit to West Valley City.

"Hallelujah" was originally written and performed by Leonard Cohen but has been covered over 60 times, including Jeff Buckley's version that popularized the song and John Cale's version that is featured on Dreamworks' 2001 animated film "Shrek."

Pentatonix has sold over 2.8 million albums in the U.S., according to its website, and its YouTube channel has over 11.2 million subscribers.
