Lecha Anu Shirah
|Original Release Date||Aug 2, 2012|
Discovered at the age of eleven when he was chosen to share a stage with Mordechai Ben David, Choni Grunblatt has been performing worldwide for seventeen years, singing with Jewish music notables, including Avraham Fried, Yoel Sharabi and Yehuda!. The highest vote getter in the debut season of A Jewish Star, singing an original composition titled Yismechu, Choni has devoted years to vocal training and his magnificent tenor voice lends itself to powerful, sweeping songs.
His long awaited, newly released single, Lecha Anu Shirah, is no exception. An original composition, it pairs Choni’s majestic voice with powerful lyrics and is hopefully the first of many singles to be released by this promising talent from Buenos Aires.
“Music is a language, the expression of one’s soul and feelings,” explains Choni. “This new song will take you on a journey to that special and powerful moment in our history, Krias Yam Suf. The composition, its melody and arrangements, is the very event relived and as I sing, I imagine how I myself would have felt crossing the YamSuf and witnessing Hashem's greatness. This song conveys the impact of that moment for me: From initial uncertainty to discovery, greatness, power and, ultimately, the exultant celebration of Hashem’s kingdom.”
A self professed perfectionist with an eye for detail, Choni was intimately involved in the arrangement of this song and he hopes that listeners everywhere will feel the beauty of its sound pulsing through their veins.
“This is a gift I received from Above, and the time has come for me to share it with you on a larger scale. Join me on this new journey, and enjoy my music to the fullest, just as it was made.”
