歌が上手すぎる神父が結婚式で披露した歌声に世界中が感動 再生数700万超え大ヒット


家族や友人による結婚式のサプライズはもはや定番だ。しかし、なんと神父さんまでもがサプライズに加わるという予想外すぎる展開を収めた動画が話題となっている。


アイルランド北東部ミース州で4月5日に行なわれた、ある結婚式でのこと。カメラは祭壇の前に座る新郎のクリスさんと新婦のリアさんの姿をとらえる。続いて画面右にいたレイ・ケリー神父が立ち上がり、2人のもとへ。しんと静まりかえった荘厳な雰囲気の中、誓いの言葉か何かを話すのかと思いきや...。

音楽が流れ、スピーチの代わりに歌を披露し始めるケリー神父。歌っているのはカナダのシンガーソングライター、レナード・コーエンの代表曲にして超名曲「ハレルヤ」。早世した天才シンガー、ジェフ・バックリィやk.d.ラングなど、これまで多くのアーティストにカバーされてきた曲としても有名だ。ちなみに、この神父さんは歌詞を"結婚式バージョン"に変えて歌っているから芸が細かい。

プロの歌手も顔負けのパワフルヴォイスと、その合間に見せる優しそうな笑顔に、新郎・新婦はもちろん参列者をも虜にしたケリー神父。予想外の高レベルなパフォーマンスに、会場はスタンディングオベーション状態となった。

映像は公開からたった4日で、驚異の733万再生を記録。英<BBC>によると、ケリー神父が歌を披露するのは地元では有名だったものの、今回の新郎新婦は離れたところから来ていたため知らなかったそうだ。映像を見た人々からも

「とにかくすごい」
「最高のサプライズだ」
「来年結婚するんだけど、この神父さんにお願いしたいな」
「2人のために、歌詞も考えてくれてたんだね(感激)」
「素晴らしい声だ」

など2,500以上のコメントが寄せられ、その多くが好意的なものだった。新郎・新婦にとっても、かなり思い出に残る結婚式になったことだろう。
