The justly popular and energetic Lindsey Stirling has taken Leonard Cohen’s profane account of King David’s sexual obsessions and turned it into a Yuletide ‘testimony of Jesus Christ’.
Lindsey affirms on the video: ‘ Maybe you think that no one sees the beauty in you, but there is one person that I have learned that always sees the beauty in us, and that’s our Saviour Jesus Christ, and this is the time of year that we have the opportunity to celebrate his birth. He was the greatest gift that we’ve ever been given, and his gospel allows us the knowledge to know that we can be with our loved ones forever.’
Lindsey, that’s not what the song’s about. This is a total distortion, but one million fans watched the video in the first 24 hours.
