Tiffany Day, 17, posted a video to her Twitter account on March 27th, and since then, her tweet has been shared 129K times and uploaded to all forms of social media. The video went viral quickly due to Day’s incredible voice in an impromptu performance of “Hallelujah.” Bored Panda writes that the teen came across the beautifully echoing fountain while in Venice. Her Kansas-based high school choir was in the middle of their trip to Italy where they sang at several cathedrals, and Day felt moved to sing into the fountain for fun while her fellow students stood around her.

“Hallelujah” has become an extremely popular song to cover. In fact, Newsweek even compiled the “top 60 versions” of the Leonard Cohen song, explaining that Cohen’s piece was flung into popularity after other artists began covering it. Newsweek writes, “It was a spate of cover interpretations—first by John Cale and Jeff Buckley, then by dozens and hundreds of others—that lifted the song out of obscurity, though it was something more mysterious that cemented its status as a modern standard, appearing on American Idol and in synagogue services in equal measure.” It’s interesting to note how different each interpretation of the song can be, including spur-of-the-moment performances like Day’s.
