Hallellujah, the version by Jason Castro. It is not a worship song, it’s a detail of contradictions, among religion and mundane things. There are other versions (Leonard Cohen wrote the song in 1984), but Castro made it more personal. It is a passionate performance, it invites me to reflect or just to listen and let go.
