Music Review: Matisyahu
I was flipping through channels recently, and I happened across Matisyahu's video to his song "King Without a Crown." For those unfamiliar with him, Matisyahu is a reggae/hip hop artist whose lyrics, from what I can tell so far, are actually spiritual and uplifting. Matisyahu (born Matthew) Miller is a Lubavitch Hasidic Jew, and a highly talented vocalist. I'm not sure if I would go out and buy one of his CD's or not, but that one single reminded me of something I once had a long time ago: A deep, abiding hope for the future, though truth be told, I can't remember when I last had that. So, for that, I salute him and wish him well.
