OK, I know the letter for today is supposed to be “L”, and no, I’m not skipping it. It’s just that it's Friday the 13th and of course things aren't going as planned, so I’m gonna improvise here and switch things around. Guess you’ll have to keep coming back so you can see that fabulous “L” post I’m planning….
Today I’d like to share with you one of my favorite musical artists, Matisyahu. As with most new artist finds for me these days, Matisyahu was introduced to me by my daughter a couple of years ago, right before his album, “Light”, was released.
What? A Hasidic Jew who performs reggae and hip-hop and does some serious beat boxing? What kind of nonsense is this? Well, it’s actually just a guy who brings a message to the world through his music, and isn’t that exactly what art is supposed to do?
Here I am including the video for Matisyahu’s hit song, “One Day”, which was used by NBC to promote the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
I hope you enjoy Matisyahu’s music as much as I do!
Who is your favorite philanthropic musician? Have you heard Matisyahu's music before?
