    He can handle it. Maybe nervy but Benshimon has to widen his range.

    submission do not have to be in a studio but it certianly looks better.

    what makes a singer a great singer?
    Guest
    what makes a singer a great singer?

    is this talent? or is this your average guy singing a Nigun very nicely.
    listen to avraham fried sing a nigun “pitch” “range” “control” in one word TALENT, i’m not putting anyone down but y does every average joe think they’ve got it?
    you guys don’t watch TV? but this looks like “America’s got talent” with a chasidishe twist.
    either way, if this is it hatzlacha rabah on a new career path.

    video?

    Key
    Guest
    Key

    Ebm is too low a key for this song to shine. Fm would have been preferable, or even Gm – highest note being E (touching F), doable for most able bodied singers.

    beutiful soothing voice.

    Rules
    Guest
    Rules

    There’s got to be rules in this competition. There’s nothing in this guy’s audition besides the music and filters to make his voice sound better.

    Is that what this competition is about? Whose studio recording is better? What if a guy doesn’t have money to compete with this level of professionalism?

    It’s a pretty stupid competition this way.

    wow
    Guest
    wow

    stunning voice hatzlacha rabba!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111

    Sometimes a niggun sung perfectly is quite off the mark.

    Very inspiring. . may he go mechayil lechayil;
    How sad that once again we cant have it, without guys making cruel, unnecessary and harmful comments;
    Dont like it?? At least have the mentchlechkeit, to keep your opinions to yourself. . and not have nachas from putting down, yet again, a fellow jew . . Poshut some people revel in open critiscism on a regular basis. . jealousy perhaps??????

    Hey, Ben you sound amazing.. . good JOB!!!
    Your voice is so sweet, i think you should sing for children, you can make music / movies like Dudu Fisher or Uncle Moishe.
    Good luck.
    The kids will love you.
