This Soulful GOSPEL Song Just Might Knock Adele Out Of The Top Spot


A song originally written as a gospel tune with religious overtones could be poised to take the top slot on the iTunes music chart.

Jordan Smith performed the Leonard Cohen song “Hallelujah” on The Voice, where it quickly rose to number 2 on the charts, knocking Justin Bieber down to the number 3 position.

Jordan Smith delivered another outstanding performance on Monday night’s episode of “The Voice.”

During the Top 10 performances, Jordan sang “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen. Since week one, Jordan has been a top contender and this week was no different.

His coach, Adam Levine, had chills after the performance. He told Jordan that his voice lifts his spirits up and “it is so important.”

This single quickly shot up the iTunes top charts, bumping Justin Bieber out of the No.2 spot and just on the heels of Adele’s No.1 hit, “Hello.”

Cohen’s song “Hallelujah” really garnered pop fame when it appeared in the wildly popular animated film Shrek, seen below.  It has seen numerous covers since its release in 1984.

The Voice contestant Jordan Smith stunned the audience with his heartfelt performance as part of the show’s Top 12 live playoffs. Many believe that Jordan will go far in the competition, especially with the success of this recent performance.

Since the beginning, Jordan Smith has been considered a fan-favorite of NBC’s The Voice Season 9. Although the 22-year-old Kentucky resident is part of Team Adam, he has also amazed the other judges with his incredible talent throughout the entire season.

Smith has performed other gospel-styled songs for the competition, previously belting out the Christian hymn “Great Is Thy Faithfulness,” a song Smith said reminded him of singing in church as a child.
