"Hallelujah I Love Her So" is the debut single from American musician Ray Charles. The rhythm and blues song was written and released by Charles in 1956 on the Atlantic label, and in 1957 it was included on his self-titled debut LP, also released on Atlantic. The song peaked at number five on the BillboardR&B chart and much like "I Got a Woman" and "This Little Girl of Mine", it was based on a gospel hymn with lyrics altered to fit a secular blues format. These songs predated the groundbreaking success Charles enjoyed near the end of the 1950s with "What'd I Say", but they significantly contributed to his increasing popularity within the R&B community.
"Hallelujah I Love Her So" is a testament to the joyous release of love, featuring a sophisticated horn arrangement and memorable tenor sax solo by Don Wilkerson. Stevie Wonder, Several artists, including: Peggy Lee, Eddie Cochran, and Humble Pie have successfully covered the song.
