Judging from all the comments, I think this must be the first time that COL is printing ONLY positive reactions! Not one person had anything negative to say! thats almost a first! The only criticism that i can think of, is that we’re not getting enough of his music, and that the world today needs it so badly. like the previous comments mentioned, his music is so sincere and heartfelt, something which is almost rare today, plus theres none of that ”embellishment” that accompanies the music of today 🙁 Please let us have more of your music, by most popular… Read more »

Que Hashem vous protege ainsi que toute votre precieuse famille .Mais franchement, avec une voix si extraordinaire et surtout si pure que la votre, ce serait un grand dommage de votre part de ne pas en faire profiter notre monde juif et surtout froum.

Vous chantez a D_eu, c’est pouquoi c’est intime et plus belle… Merci bien a l’Eternal pour toi-donner cette voix et la chanson. Je voudrais les mots de cette chanson (Adon Olam). Merci bien pour rendrez les mots dans Anglais, se vous avez. Ahava v’brachot, Ilana Wherry, Londres.

This is amazing, how far he was from yiddishkeit, even buttoning his jacket left over right, and now, wow, saying tehillim with such kavanah and giving to the poor.
Also, we should add that he is using the ohel Yosef Yitzchak tehillim, which has a special segulah, as the Rebbe mentioned, in addition to all the segulos of saying Tehillim from any kind.

So appeasing!
February 5, 2014 1:43 pm

It’s voice is so delicate yet very powerful. I can listen to this kind of music all day long. Please do more music, this is what our generation needs. Hatzlocho rabbo

Singing your soul..
February 5, 2014 1:12 pm

Thank you for choosing to record this now. I would love to hear you sing this with simple background sans needless and distracting embellishment. Your singing and the song deserve to be presented in a pure way free of overproduction . I’m very inspired by your journey from then to now. Yasher koach. I hope that you will continue to record and hopefully with simplicity and space in the arrangements to allow your voice and songs to soar on their own considerable strength. Respe tfully, Devorah

WOW
February 5, 2014 12:49 pm

Reminds me of Zilbers story

YIDDISHE NACHAS!
February 5, 2014 10:06 am

As I once said to a mother whose three children all became frum, and her friends tried to ‘comfort her’, “Ask your friends how many grandchildren they have, and tell them how many you have ka’h!”

Speak to our youth
February 5, 2014 9:53 am

Speak to our children, who don’t understand that their parents and a whole generation gave up the kind of life which they now find attractive, to live a Torah life instead!

Wow!
February 5, 2014 9:21 am

Never heard such sincerity in my life
Is there more?

Where can we get his CD?
February 5, 2014 9:19 am

This brought tears to my eyes! what beautiful singing! what a voice and what an inspiration to us all!
Please let us know if and where we can get hold of more of his songs, and if there are’nt any yet, please do sing and produce more music for us all! like his grandchildren, we too, would love to hear more!
What an inspiration! what a heart warmer! Much hatzlocha in the future iyh

Bravo! Tu es excellent! Ta voix est superbe!

Hatzlocha
February 4, 2014 11:13 pm

If he sounds so beautiful now after 30 years what must he have sounded when he was younger. Best part is when he sang with his grandchildren what Nachas PLEASE record a album(with your grandchildren) and inspire others to return to Torah and Mitzvas it is never to late Hatzlocha.

Rebbe's Philosophy
February 4, 2014 10:18 pm

This singer is magnificent and should follow the Rebbe’s philosophy of using one’s talents. He should speak to a mashpia.
