Meir Goldberg Releases His Debut Single “My Yiddishe Mama” + Music Video

by yossi October 15, 2013

In his debut music video, Meir Goldberg offers a new twist on the classic English-Yiddish song, My Yiddishe Mama, infusing the 1920′s musical gem both with his own talents and a flavor that manages to be both hip and touching.

Goldberg follows in the footsteps of some of the greatest musical talents of the last century, including Yossele Rosenblatt, Sophie Tucker, the Barry Sisters, Leo Fuld, Itzhak Perlman, Tom Jones and Neil Sedaka, tackling a song that is almost larger than life with his considerable vocal abilities. A cantor at the Palm Beach Synagogue who is also one of the remaining contestants on season three of A Jewish Star, Goldberg does justice in this updated tribute to mothers worldwide, joined by rappers Brooklyn Mentality.

The son of a cantor in the Israeli army, Goldberg grew up in Tel Aviv, surrounded by musical greats including Cantors Moshe Stern and David Bagley. He began his vocal training with his father and after relocating to Brooklyn in his teens, he continued his training at Juilliard. More than just a cantor, Goldberg is drawn to many diverse styles of music and hopes to have the opportunity to share his musical versatility with music fans everywhere.

It was its broad appeal that drew Goldberg to My Yiddishe Mama, which has been translated into many languages including Spanish, Hungarian, Finnish, French, Polish and German.

“This is a universal song, sung by many of the greats,” explained Goldberg. “I loved the idea of the song and the way it was glorified in the video with the many modern updates.”

My Yiddishe Mama is a Sparks Next Production directed by Danny Finkelman and shot by Mauricio Arenas.
