Beware Internet: You are about to hit a breaking point. Soloist Peter Hollens and America's Got Talent favorite Jackie Evancho have teamed up for a most resounding rendition of Leonard Cohen's iconic "Hallelujah."

Hollens appeared on Season 2 of the NBC reality show The Sing-Off and has been compared to the unique vocal quintet Pentatonix, who also rose to fame through the show.

And now — like we need to tell you — but Evancho is the 14-year-old soprano that has been dazzling audiences with her luminous vocal chops and grace. Having come to prominence through AGT, she also performed at the National Christmas Tree Lighting in Washington, D.C.

The song will be included on Hollens's self-titled debut album, which was recorded and produced by Hollens and includes 13 tracks and features seven songs from his catalog along with six new tunes.

But for now, while the track still effervesces, make sure you catch a listen of the latest cover from the studded duo as they sing Cohen's most famous "Hallelujah." It should leave you chilled from skin to bone.

And be sure to keep up with Peter Hollens on his Twitter, Facebook and YouTube channels. As for Jackie, we all know where to find her.
