“Hallelujah – Julia Westlin (ACAPELLA)”

“Hallelujah – Julia Westlin (ACAPELLA)”

It is a song that many know, but few know much about. The meaning of “Hallelujah,” a popular masterpiece of music, is perhaps best understood through its complex history.

This song has a long and fascinating story behind it–one that is marked by a tragedy eerily befitting this mournful masterpiece. It was an under-appreciated work of a poet/songwriter in the 80s, and became the iconic song of a legendary musician, who faced a tragic early death. Now it’s one of the most covered songs of all time. It has been adapted, re-interpreted, and re-written countless times. Through its evolution and constant re-interpretation, the meaning and significance of “Hallelujah” has gained even more substance.

ABOUT JULIA WESTLIN

Born in Sweden, Julia Westlin is a YouTube Star known for her unique and beautiful a capella covers. Now living in Canada, where she continues to perform, she agreed to meet with us for an exclusive interview to give us a different perspective on how her story began.

Music came to you at a very young age. Self-taught, you’ve been singing and playing many instruments, including piano and guitar. How did this all start?

Art and music have always been my big passions. When I was a kid, I was known as the girl who was always drawing. I never had any problems entertaining myself. My father is a very talented artist and he encouraged me and my brothers to create. I was always singing, dancing and doing all kinds of theatric stuff — being in my bubble with a lot of imagination. My mum used to say that I couldn’t walk normally through a room without making it a Show Tune. But in school I was extremely shy, and I was classified as the “silent” person even though I had a lot to say. I just couldn’t get it out, so I drew and wrote a lot instead. source
