Better times at the boardwalk.
Choni Goldman, winner of the title Jewish Star of 2012, has released his first music video which was filmed in the oceanside Brooklyn neighborhood of Brighton Beach.
Produced by Danny Finkelman, the clip shows Goldman bringing a hopeful message to an area still recovering from the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy not long ago.
With the Atlantic Ocean in the background, Goldman sings "Nisbiah," the song composed especially for him by musical talent Eli Gerstner as part of his prize for winning the international singing competition.
Choni's quick rise on the public stage comes on the heels of youthful endeavours, among them singing as an 11-year-old with Mordechai Ben David at a concert in his native city of Johannesburg, South Africa.
A seasoned chazzan as well, fans say his honey golden voice, free flowing style and comfortable stage presence, produces a refreshing synergy that pulsates through his performances.
Stay tuned for the opening of season four of A Jewish Star.
