The Canadian Tenors Perform "Hallelujah" Unaware A Music Legend Is Standing Right Behind Them
Kristin Danley 5/4/2018
Before they became known as The Tenors, the powerful group of male singers were known previously as The Canadian Tenors. Their deep, rich voices are a beautiful blend of tenor, bass and baritone when they harmonize.
In their performance captured in the video below, they stand before a studio audience with stage fog drifting across their feet. The group member seated began to strum the strains of a classic favorite, Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah."
A second group member sang the opening verse of this emotional song, then the other three chime in with stunning harmony for the chorus. The audience was shockingly still and quiet as they listened to the group's incredible sound.
A different group member took the lead on the next verse, followed by a third member. Then the two chimed together for a glorious sounding duet to round out the verse of this beautiful song that many people love.
As The Canadian Tenors sang the second round of the chorus, suddenly the backdrop slid open to reveal an international superstar who also hails from Canada - none other than Celine Dion! The crowd gasps at her appearance, but it's the men's expressions that are simply wonderful.
The singer silently glided up behind the men. As she approached them, one then two of the men glance over and see Celine, shock showing on their faces.
When all four finally realized who had joined them, their responses were almost comical. The group tried to control their reaction, but they could not contain their smiles and disbelief.
When the men sang the final verse, the amazing Celine Dion stood between them and chimed in, lending her beautiful soprano voice to their deep, rich male sound. Then on the chorus, Celine added her own flair and style.
Celine is an incredible singer and the group is two, but when you combine forces, the result is spectacular. They sound simply amazing.
As the group gloriously wrapped up the performance, the crowd jumped to their feet, screaming and cheering. Watch the video below to see the amazing surprise performance for yourself.
