He already is a serious Chazzen/Bal Tefilah. Many of us in pgh Lubavitch Cntr very much enjoy his heartfelt chassidic davening on shabbosim and he does High Holiday davening somewhere else. I’ve heard him sing “regular” songs too and you wouldn’t think form this video but he’s amazing on that too.

yes this is a singing competition, but this looks like an entry. if you like other contestants better you can vote for those. I like this one better & will vote for this one.

agree with #19

Awesome!!!!!

December 30, 2009 10:26 am

we should have people posting unknown nigunnim once a week

you are a real star... lol
December 30, 2009 10:24 am

well done, btw

its great!
December 30, 2009 9:58 am

Idea
December 30, 2009 9:58 am

He’s very interesting, maybe we can have a nigun of the week presented like this on COL.

avremel??

looking at his yarmoulka makes me think his an mbd-fan.

A Nevler's opinion
December 30, 2009 9:13 am

Great rendition!!! To #3 – the “Kvetchen” that you refer to are an integral part of this Niggun as well as the “Nevler” style of singing Chassidishe Niggunim in general. They are not “bumps and humps..” but an expression of a deeper heartfelt emotion, serious – like Reb Zalmen Levin’s unforgettable rendition of “Zhebiner Hartz”, or joyful – like in “Nye bayussia” by Reb Zalmen Levin. The same is very noticeable by the Menagnim of the Levin Mishpocho to this day. To #4 – the mention is very appropriate and in context, to bring out the difference in the style… Read more »

Very hard to find these days, even in CH … ironically I found that amazon has it (download mp3 only) http://www.amazon.com/My-Entire-Being/dp/B001UF2VE2

December 30, 2009 9:11 am

Very Chassidishe voice. Loved it!

close your eyes
December 30, 2009 9:05 am

great
December 30, 2009 9:04 am

December 30, 2009 8:54 am

Yeh it probably is, since avraham fried is judging this, they feel they have to shmooze him up! Lol!
Nice voice….

beautiful!!!
December 30, 2009 8:41 am

GReat job Mendel!

Another strong contestant
December 30, 2009 8:36 am

Wow, there is really some talent to choose from!

really nice voice
December 30, 2009 8:33 am

\really something!
i like that. your voice is straight from the heart, and it can only happen if you live the niggun!
good luck!

December 30, 2009 8:25 am

With all the kids idolizing music stars, Fried is one of the only who can be a real example to being a chossid and let not letting the success change him

So, to Avremel, thank you for being what and who you are

Great!
December 30, 2009 8:23 am

This guy is solid. Real Chasidishe talent. Hatzlach (we need people who have their with their priorities straight)

is it a must to mention a. fried in evey video? :)
December 30, 2009 8:21 am
nice chazonishe voice
December 30, 2009 8:21 am

He would make a good chazzan (not so much singer). Next time please sing with out kvetching so much. You have a beautifull voice. No need to sing like an old chossid

i love that tape too!
December 30, 2009 8:20 am

good old school nigunim, i like, nice to hear something just sung for the sake of singing.

very strong voice
December 30, 2009 8:17 am

there may be some competition here!
