Story

BS”D

Son of Israel


My connection with being Jewish and my artistic side have come together as one.

I now see that actualizing my potential, gaining a deeper understanding of my-self, my strengths and my weaknesses, and coming closer to G-d have also been one.


I fully believe that everything that I see and hear in this world is a personal message to me from The One Above and intimately and specifically related to my mission in this world.


Therefore, whenever I write a song and express an insight or idea that has come to mind, I also continue to develop my relationship with G-d, grow as a person, and improve as an artist.


This song, Son of Israel, is about realizing how being a Jewish artist is a real way of sanctifying the name of G-d, and actualizing my personal calling.

Lyrics

BS”D

Son of Israel


The seed of pride I planted grew
And then I cut it down
A feeling that was in me since I was a kid
Took a hold on solid ground

From my mind to my heart
From my words to my deeds
I’m a son of Israel
I’m a son of Israel

I was born the day I went free
I saw the liberty of life
Without a burden my eyes could see
A holy way to use my might

From my mind to my heart
From my words to my deeds
I’m a son of Israel
I’m a son of Israel

Took advantage of my birthright

Remembered a forgotten vow

A heritage from my father

Who broke away from the crowd

From my mind to my heart
From my words to my deeds
I’m a son of Israel
I’m a son of Israel
