This is my birthday present to my father, who turns 66 years old today. Being a man of faith, I understand he's quite fond of the song. So I also took the liberty of adding a small prayer near the end. Hope you like it, dad.

I know a million people and their grandmothers have made a cover of this song. Perhaps I should just take that as a challenge.

This is Leonard Cohen's famous song 'Hallelujah', but the version I am basing this on is actually K.D Lang's version. As much as I like the original, K.D Lang's version is just fantastic. To me, it's even better than Jeff Buckley's version. Besides, K.D Lang rocks!

For the first time I also added a bit of choir using my own voice. You'll hear it in the second half of the song. I think it turned out OK!

I hope everyone enjoys it. As always I much appreciate feedback, be it good or bad, as long as it's constructive and will help me improve.

And, oh! Happy birthday, dad!
