WICHITA, Kan. — A haunting rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” sung by an American high school student into a wishing well in Italy has gained a lot of online attention.
Tiffany Ruan was on a spring trip with a singing group from her school in Wichita, Kansas, last week when she spotted the well in Venice.
