Hasidic Rap? (with Esther Deutsch, S2 | E64)
Esther met Matisyahu one day at camp. And at the time of the meeting, she did now know it was actually this music star that many revere. This man, who is a talented beat-boxer, rapper, composer, musician and performer, is loved by millions across the world. And now you can add one more… me. Songs of hope and dedication and mission and devotion. Anthems that you just cannot stop singing.
I think I am introducing this Hasidic Rapper to many with this show – and that makes me happy. I think it will make Esther happy too.
