As חדש ניסן is upon us, the month of חרות, the month of גאולה, one cannot help but think about all of the צרות that we are facing across every part of the world. Without exception. We are all in it together. We can feel each others worry and pain. Who can say they are not ready nor anxious to see the גאולה שלימה immediately!
This coming Pesach let's come together as one. Let us Sing as One Nation in harmony. A תפלה in אחדות. A cry that will pierce the above from all corners of earth.
מי שעשה נסים לאבותינו וגאל אותם מעבדות לחרות. הוא יגאל אותנו בקרוב ויקבץ נדחינו מארבע כנפות הארץ חברים כל ישראל, ונאמר אמן.
Chananya Begun and New Sound Productions is proud to present a brand new concept: Featuring Mendy J, this is a new video titled Habeit - Reimagined.
Based on the legendary Abie Rotenberg's composition, Mendy J delivers an incredible performance. His vocals truly capture the essence of what this song is - a heartfelt cry to Hashem. Take that, and add on Chananya's well known cutting edge approach to musical arrangement, but an arrangement that brings out that emotion even more.
What happens is something that is truly astounding, combining various aspects of Jewish Music as you have never heard it before. This music video was shot in a way that brings out that raw emotion and creativity to the viewer. This is a song of hope, so let us be hopeful for Am Yisroel, even in the toughest of times. Uvechol Zos, shimcha lo shachachnu.
The attached audio / video has been given to YWN by R' Gavriel Sassoon, and has been edited of all Kol Isha. Last Year on Chanukah the entire Sassoon family gathered in a music studio, and recorded themselves singing Yaakov Shwekey's "Cry No More".
Mr. Sassoon was distraught after learning that the audio with his wife and daughters singing had gone viral, and made sure that a new version was edited in a music studio today. The audio was subsequently given to YWN to share.
Listen to the song as it takes on a whole new meaning in light of recent events....
