Over 100K Views in One Day - Jerusalem

Though many in the world are not very familiar with it, but last week it was 'Jerusalem Day" where the liberation of the ancient city of Jerusalem is celebrated. It's a big thing where I'm from (Israel). One of the most famous and recognizable songs in Hebrew is called "Jerusalem of Gold". I thought it would be a lot of fun to produce, arrange and record a tribute to the glorious golden city - and that I did along with my great friend and bandmate Adam Perry and my younger (more talented than I) brother Jonathan W. I wanted to do a mashup between 2 legendary songs, the first being "Jerusalem of Gold" and the second being "Im Eshkachech Yerushalaim" - which means, "If I forget you Jerusalem". 


I released the song to the world on the morning of Jerusalem Day and it went viral on Facebook - watched by over 100 thousand people in a single day. Sometimes I like going a little bit off-genre and outside of my comfort zone to touch into styles of music that are not my usual work, and it's really fun and above all fulfilling! I hope that you enjoy this piece, and if you don't understand the words... my apologies guys ;)
