Despite the commotion about the Alexandra Burke version of Hallelujah, Natalia & Gabriel Rios recorded a new version of the Hallelujah-song for the 1212 – Help Haiti charity show on Belgian public and commercial TV stations (één & VTM)
With competition from Jeff Buckley, Leonard Cohen, Damien Rice and a lot of others, this version may not necessarily pass the test of time. (Nevertheless a strong performance by Gabriel Rios).  But  more importantly all profits will be donated to Haiti charity .

Buy the song to support Haiti (not yet available on itunes – 21- Jan 2010)
