An Invigorating Collaboration

Here is the backstory via Israel Video Network:  The one thing that Gad Elbaz and Nissim Black have in common is that they are both well known performers whose parents were well known performers. In terms of backgrounds, it’s day and night. Gad Elbaz, writer and composer of the Hebrew song “HaShem Melech” (God is King), is the son of Israeli singer, Benny Elbaz, and himself a well-known religious singer. Nissim [Damian] Black, born as a Sunni Muslim to rapper parents in Seattle, was a well known rapper at an early age. He and his wife converted to Judaism in 2013 and Nissim (meaning “miracles”) has been rapping Jewish ever since.  What an uplifting cultural synthesis coming together in one of the most multicultural cities in the world to say what they both believe…

And here is more on Damian Black’s background and conversion to Judaism.

  2. You’re welcome, and in turn I’ll credit Dr. Gregory Borukhov who made me aware of the music video.
