Sea Gate, NY – Trendsetting Chasidic Singer Michoel Schnitzler in First-Ever Video Interview‏ VIN NEWS

by yossi October 01, 2009

Sea Gate, NY – For the past two decades, trendsetting Chasidic singer Michoel Schnitzler has been in demand at Chareidi weddings from Brooklyn to Belgium and beyond. But few know that Schnitzler was one of the very first, if not the very first, singers to regularly entertain at weddings.

Today, Michoel points out, a singer-less wedding prompts guests to query, “Where’s the singer?” But before Schnitzler’s career took off, if the singer is to be believed in his first-ever video interview conducted by Yossi Zweig of the Z Report, the now-accepted standard was virtually unheard of.

Besides breaking new ground, Michoel claims responsibility for introducing a young and wildly gifted Lipa Schmeltzer and other top talents to the Chasidic music industry. He also notes that he never allowed secular trends to influence his musical style. “I never listen to Goyishe music,” he tells his interviewer.

Michoel also speaks of the hours spent with seriously ill children and others boosting their morale, and the gratitude to Hashem that he feels for the ability to reinvigorate broken hearts.

Michoel is breaking new ground again with his latest album “Main Kind Tref Mich” the fourth in his “yiddish” series and the tenth of his career—particularly with Track #5, entitled “Der Bochur’s Tzavah.” lyrics here

The controversial song tells the story of an at-risk teen who was a regular guest at Michoel’s home. The unfortunate lad had been expelled from a succession of yeshivos, going from bad to worse and sadly succumbing to a terminal illness.

Before his passing, the young man asked Michoel to address the issue of his sorry peregrinations and those of too many like him.

The song, entitled “Der Bochur’s Tzavah,” takes on the frum society that rejects rather than embraces such suffering souls, wading into controversial territory as it minces few words to challenge a community to change, a challenge that VIN strongly supports, and commands Michoel for standing up, and bringing to the forefront the subject painful to so many.

Michoel discusses all this and more in his first-ever full-length video interview, seen exclusively here on VIN
