Shannon Christensen Abbott posted a clip of herself on Facebook singing her own version of ‘Hallelujah’ exchanging the true lyrics with the lyrics that reflect her hectic life as a mom of two.
Just over a week later, and her Facebook video has been viewed more than 3 million times.
Alongside the video, Abbott wrote: “I have always loved the song ‘Hallelujah’ but the lyrics to the original version are, well, weird!”
After reaching two million views, Abbott took to Facebook again to say she is ‘thrilled’.
“Unbelievable,” she said. “I am thrilled and humbled that this silly little song that I wrote for a silly little talent show in teeny, tiny Payson, Utah, could bring so much joy to people around the WORLD.”
