Irish musician Hozier took the world by storm with “Take Me to Church” - a single that took him from his attic in Bray, Co. Wicklow and hurled him into the spotlight.
Many artists have covered the song with added personal twists - with over 92 million views on YouTube and 182 million plays on Spotify, a few musicians are bound to give it a whirl.
Here’s a rendition unlike the others, though, by a cappella group “Melodores” from Vanderbilt University in Tennessee. It’s bound to give you full-body chills with its strength and passion.
They really blew judges away, and it ended up winning them the famous US a cappella competition “The Sing Off” on NBC.
Because he came from humble beginnings, Hozier told Elle Magazine that his friends make fun of him for how successful he's become:
“They just make fun of me. They jump straight to jokes that I’m injecting heroin into my eyeballs and racing to an early grave with every success, ” he said.
