In an exuberant explosion of music, Israeli star Gad Elbaz joins forces with American rapper Nissim Black, taking to the streets of New York City to perform a new rendition of Elbaz’ hit, Hashem Melech.
Hashem Melech 2.0 pairs Nissim’s fast-paced wisdom with Elbaz’ fresh melodic additions to create a new blockbuster hit of the classic song.
Directed and produced by Daniel Finkelman, the music video is packed with breathtaking power amidst stunning New York City backdrops. Elbaz and Nissim deliver their message dancing joyously through city streets and on skyscraper rooftops, exhorting listeners to believe in a better tomorrow.
Hashem Melech 2.0 is a driving-force behind a crowdfunding campaign in partnership with CauseMatch.com and Aish HaTorah for the seven children and wife of recent terrorist victim Rabbi Reuven Biermacher, who was tragically killed by a terrorist on December 23, 2015. The song is being offered free on www.HashemMelech.com exclusively for donors, with a goal of raising $1,000,000 to relieve the bereaving family of the financial burden of losing their sole breadwinner. Nissim, who left a successful music career to convert to Orthodox Judaism, and veteran singer Gad Elbaz, are known for integrating messages of social change in their music, and this campaign is an effort at materializing those messages into action.
