Since MBD has decided to end his singing career, who do you think will come on as the next king of Jewish music?November 21, 2011 3:39 am at 3:39 am #828809midwesternerParticipant
He hasn’t ended his singing career, just his recording career. And in case you haven’t noticed, many others have drastically slowed down as well. Very hard to make money on a CD in today’s electronic file sharing world.November 21, 2011 4:18 am at 4:18 am #828810WIYMember
MAD will always be known as the king. However I think Shwekey and Fried as well as Ohad are all great.November 21, 2011 4:12 pm at 4:12 pm #828811
(He already is the king of Jewish music – those who know his music would know that) ; )November 21, 2011 4:55 pm at 4:55 pm #828812soliekMember
oh yes and benny friedman i love their voicesNovember 21, 2011 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #828813MeinMeinungMember
The King of Jewish Music is a father singing zemiros at the shabbos table instilling warmth and love for Hashem into everyone around.November 21, 2011 5:43 pm at 5:43 pm #828814flowersParticipant
MeinMeinung: I like your answer.November 21, 2011 6:26 pm at 6:26 pm #828815soliekMember
i dont like MM’s answer because it completely undercuts the intended and obvious meaning of the questionNovember 21, 2011 6:45 pm at 6:45 pm #828816
Hi soliek. Actually, in many ways, MM’s answer is a great footnote to the question.November 21, 2011 6:49 pm at 6:49 pm #828817ToiParticipant

Abie Rotenberg is the true kingNovember 21, 2011 7:25 pm at 7:25 pm #828819aries2756Participant
Whoever has a favorite singer, to them that singer is the King of Jewish Music. I believe most Jewish singers feel that MBD is the KING. He really was the one who started out solo in a new era of Jewish Music and inspired all the others to follow suit. All the other Jewish records at the time were all groups.
As far as retiring from recording, there is always “come backs” so we will all just have to wait and see.November 21, 2011 7:28 pm at 7:28 pm #828820

Avraham Fried is as good today as he was 20-30 years ago. He is, in my books, right in line with MBD and I always enjoyed his albums + performances. IMHO If anyone deserves a nomination for next King of Jewish music, it’s him.
