VIDEO - Yeshiva University a cappella group, The Maccabeats,
has gained legions of fans and millions of YouTube views for its catchy a cappella parodies and covers of other folks’ songs. Now the lads unveil their first original song, “Shine."
“'Shine’ is a song about Hanukkah
and so much more, and we hope that the song and video inspire all of our fans to keep the flame of Hanukkah burning well beyond the Festival of Lights,” The Maccabeats said in a press release Thursday.
In the song’s corresponding video, the group encourages viewers to “get swabbed” for the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation. Partnering again with actress/author Mayim Bialik, The Maccabeats are attempting to draw awareness to their Miracle Match Campaign.
“This campaign raises much-needed funds to process tissue samples from potential donors. Miracle Match has saved lives, and could save so many more with your help,” The Maccabeats continued in the press release.
