"Sing Hallelujah" is a 1992 song recorded by the Sweden-based musician and producer Dr. Alban. It was released as a single in 1993.

Release[edit]

It was the third single from his second studio album One Love. The song was released in 1993 and became a great hit reaching the top 10 in almost all European countries and managing no. 16 in the UK Singles Chart. After "It's My Life", this was the second Dr Alban's hit which had an international scope.

The song is a "discothèques anthem with dance and disco sonorities".[2]

"Sing Hallelujah" charted again in the 2000s when it was re-recorded by the artist in new versions.

Critical reception[edit]

Billboard wrote about the song: "Follow-up to "It's My Life" already has enjoyed a very hot run through much of England and Europe. The record's peppy pop/NRG personality is enhanced by rousing handclaps, insistent piano lines, and a chirpy gospel choir. Truly irresistible tune will have you raising your hands to the sky and singing along with the wonderfully catchy chorus."[3]

Music & Media wrote: "Pulling teeth is apperently not so painful after all, because down at the doctor's a gospel choir breaks loose on a dance beat."[4]
