Irish priest amazes wedding couple with epic personal version of Hallelujah

Wow.

CHRIS AND LEAH O’Kane got married in Oldcastle, Co Meath on Saturday.

No doubt it was a happy day for everyone – but there was a surprise in store during the wedding ceremony.

And it involved a very unusual singing priest.

Fr Ray Kelly belted out a full-length version of Jeff Buckley’s Hallelujah*, complete with personalised lyrics:

We join together here today / to help two people on their way

As Leah and Chris start their life together…

It’s quite amazing. Wait til he really gets going:


He came perilously close to a standing ovation from the congregation:

Congratulations, Leah and Chris. All the best for the future!
