Here’s something cool: Messianic musician Troy Mitchell covering Matisyahu’s song Sunshine:
(For the uninitiated, Matisyahu is a popular Jewish reggae artist who sings Hebrew Bible-themed songs that make it to secular, everyday FM-radio.)
The short of it is: Matisyahu’s sponsoring a contest for best cover of one of his songs. You vote, and the winner plays live with Matisyahu.
Troy Mitchell, above, is doing a cover of Sunshine. Let’s get him some votes, shall we? A Messianic musician playing live with Matisyahu – wouldn’t that be something?
I’ve met Troy on several occasions – he plays music at a Messianic congregation near me, and also does some other cool stuff: I went to a kosher deli a few months back, and there was Troy playing some traditional Jewish tunes right there in the café. I was at a Messianic wedding a few months back, and there was Troy doing some praises on the guitar.
Bottom line: this is a great way to help out my friend and disciple of Yeshua and amplify Messiah at the same time.
Vote for Troy here. Thanks!
