We have adored 4th Impact covers from their first audition on The X Factor; and, we believe they’ve just given us one of their best yet. This is a cover of Leonard Cohen’s song “Hallelujah”, which was covered by Jeff Buckley and Alexandra Burke – the latter of which was her winner’s single from The X Factor series four, which hit number one.
4th Impact have been stunning us for the past couple of years as they truly set out into the music world. From entering competitions to being a contestant on Superstar K6, where they came eighth. From being a contestant on The X Factor, where they came fifth on the 12th series, to releasing their first single “Unleash The Diva“. From releasing their second single “It’s Not The Same Anymore” for the film Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes to featuring in Tony Valor’s recently released single “D’ Nah Nah (Shaky Bum Bum)“. These four sisters from the Philippines – consisting of Almira Cercado, Irene Cercado, Mylene Cercado, and Celina Cercado – are certainly on the road to success.
They’ve done quite a few covers in the past, with their audition for The X Factor hitting 100 million YouTube views, which makes them the most viewed audition from an act who reached the live shows. They’ve also covered Camila Cabello’s “Havana“, Demi Lovato’s “Stone Cold“, Little Mix’s “Power“, Clean Bandit & Zara Larsson’s “Symphony / Ain’t My Fault“, and Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito“. This cover is totally one of our favourites though.
They decided to cover this song after many of the dreamers – 4th Impact fans – requested the girls to cover the song. Honest and genuine, the four Cercado sisters thanked their fans for requesting the song at the end of this video.
All four members of 4th Impact showcase their amazing vocals on this song. Each of the girls add their own stunning voice to the track, managing to fully embrace the song as a whole and release the emotion out to the listeners. Their version also adds addicting harmonies, which we’ve never heard before in a “Hallelujah” cover. 4th Impact sure knows how to make a song their own, and this fully works with their voices in every single way.
