Matisyahu’s Chanukah "Miracle"

Matisyahu has released the new Chanukah song, “Miracle,” on iTunes in advance of his the Festival of Light festival. The song was produced by Dr. Luke protégé Kool Kojak (Flo Rida, Katy Perry, Ke$ha) and is now streaming on the singer’s homepage.

“There are so many Christmas songs out there,” Matisyahu said in a statement. “I wanted to give the Jewish kids something to be proud of. We’ve got Adam Sandler’s song, which is hilarious, but I wanted to try to get across some of the depth and spirituality inherent in the holiday in a fun, celebratory song. My boy Kojak was in town so at the last minute we went into the studio in the spirit of miracles and underdogs and this is what we came up with. Happy Hannukah!”
