A year in a half ago huge Chassidic singer Ohad entered the studio and began work on his fourth album. After going through hundreds of songs, they have carefully selected a dozen of them to be recorded and will be included on the new album. Now, shortly before the release of the new album comes an exciting new single called “Birkat Chupa” recorded especially from chattanim and kallot to accompany the most exciting night in their life and also released as a music video.

This song is a new and exciting version of the original song written by John Legend which was an unprecedented international hit. Now a Jewish version of the song comes out with the holy words written by none other then Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu as a prayer said during the wedding ceremony.
“The most significant part for me during my career as a singer is to make happy the kallot and chatanim,” said Ohad. “I have released albums, appeared on some of the largest stages and events in the world, yet when I sing at a wedding I’m excited every single night. Standing under a chupa, with all its meaning and sanctity in the air, makes me want to keep doing what I’m doing all for my whole life. I feel it is my duty to do utmost best, and bring joy to those attending the simcha. A few months ago I had heard these words, composed by Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu zt”l. “I immediately connected to thr simple and moving words and hope everyone else feels just as connected,” says Ohad.
