A Wichita Collegiate School student’s singing video from a spring break trip to Europe has gone viral.
While traveling with her Collegiate Madrigals ensemble in Italy – a trip the singing group takes during odd-numbered years – Tiffany Ruan, 17, stopped at a wishing well in Spoleto to sing Leonard Cohen’s classic “Hallelujah.”
Ruan, a junior at the school who also goes by Tiffany Day, posted a 48-second video clip on Twitter of her singing into the well on March 27.
