Benny Friedman's Hope Anthem

First debut: A new music video from Benny Friedman serves as a reminder that even in tough and trying times, "Yesh Tikvah."

By COLlive reporter

An uplifting music video was released Monday with a timely message as the Jewish world closely follows the rocket attacks on Israel and as Americans in the northeast try to recuperate after Superstorm Sandy.

"Yesh Tikvah," the title track of Benny Friedman's new hit album, shows the popular singer standing against a dark urban backdrop and then being joined by children to dance in the field - in bright daylight.

Produced by Moshe Bree of Ingenious Productions, the song indeed serves as an important reminder that even in tough and trying times, "Yesh Tikvah" - there is hope.

The song was composed by Ari Goldwag, with lyrics by Miriam Israel, arranged by Ian Freitor. The song, as was the entire album, was produced by Avi Newmark.

The album is distributed by Aderet Music and available on MostlyMusic.com

Danger
I live in Betar and this song is constantly playing in our home. Every time we hear the start of the siren in the song we get a bit scared and then calm down as we hear Benny continuing to sing.Today a siren went off and it took a few precious moments to realize it is a real siren and not part of the song. I waited to hear Benny singing and then reality set in and we ran for shelter!!!!
Unfortunate that the producer of this song didn't take all this into consideration!!!!!

yey a song with more then 5 words repeating itself.
thats an improvement i can't wait until it gets more intresting and producers and composers will start writing interesting songs with more words..... they got lots of non jewish stuff to compete with they're doing good with the graphics, the moves the cool music but its still boring with a possuk repeating itself over and over again... in this son however its better... but benny he is awesome i love him and his voice

response to 28
תסתכל פה ושם
מסביב לעולם
יש צרות, דאגות
החיוך נעלם
אך אל תראה רק שחור
כי גם זה יעבור
והכל יסתדר
כי ד' יעזור

יש תקוה
אם נשיר כולנו יחד
יש אמונה חזקה מכל הפחד
לא נפול, לא נרעד
כי אנחנו לא לבד
לנו יש ד' אחד

היי, אחי
בוא איתי
שים ידך בידי
אל תדאג, אל תפחד
כי נצעד יד ביד
הקדוש ברוך הוא
את כולנו אוהב
עוד תראה שמחר
ייגמר הכאב....use google translate if you want
