Yidi Bialostozky - Shabbos Hee - Music Video

Yidi Bialostozky - Shabbos Hee: A Quarantine project

Last Friday found singer Yidi Bialostozky dressed in his shtreimel and Beckishe sitting down at the piano. As Klal Yisrael was getting ready for a shabbos in quarantine, he took a moment to express his feelings in song: For the first time, although Shabbos was coming, the streets were empty, with no one going to shul. Without much thought, he recorded his newly composed song and posted it on social media. The clip went viral becoming an instant hit worldwide.

The powerful response was what convinced Yidi to share this song with the world as an official single for the next Shabbos. The short timing and the fact that everyone was home posed a real challenge. But, after sharing the idea with Arranger Lipa Brach the two decided they were in for the challenge.

While Yidi reached out to Chaim Meir Fligman of Shir Veshevach Studios to enhance the project with his adult choir, Lipa wrote a beautiful arrangement and had it performed by the best musicians in the industry, each recording the music from the confines of his own home.

A unique dimension was added by Yidi's brother in law, child soloist, Shloimy Moses who sings in the Shir Veshevach Choir and then the puzzle was completed by the talented Gershy Schwartz from Edgware studio.
