mAtIsYaHu iN LiSbOn...


I got offered a ticket for the concert :-) and it was really cool to go ...
I also loved going with Jesse and Trevor, I just love my younger brothers :-)...

Matisyahu is not from Jamaica, he doesn't have dreadlocks in his hair, and he's not a great communicator in public... but people are considering him the new embassador of Reggae music...

He's a jew and has his own style of dancing and presenting himself...
for me, what makes him different are the lyrics and the message in it...he sings to God and about God...
OK, here goes just a bit of Matisyahu hit "King without a crown" ...
"You're all that I have and you're all that I need
Each and every day I pray to get to know you please
I want to be close to you, yes I'm so hungry
You're like water for my soul when it gets thirsty
Without you there's no me
You're the air that I breathe...
I Sing to my G-d all these songs of love and healing
Want Moshiach now so it's time we start revealing
Strip away the layers and reveal your soul
Got to give yourself up and then you become whole
You're a slave to yourself and you don't even know..."

As I was there I wondered how many of those people actually new what he was singing about...
I don't know, but the truth is that he's mobilizing a whole crowd of young people to listen about God... like so many other musicians this days...
The Message of the Gospel is being more accepted from stages then from pulpits...hum...interesting !!!
