India in New York: Arie Gets Down With Idan Raichel

Last night India.Arie was a surprise special guest at Idan Raichel’s November 10 show at the Museum of Jewish Heritage.

Dayenu: It would have been enough to have seen India.Arie perform next to Raichel — the combination of musical talent (not to mention hair length) would have been impressive.

But, showbiz trooper that she is, India.Arie wanted to point her vocal chords at one of Raichel’s songs… in Hebrew. Raichel talked about meeting her before she spoke Hebrew but the Grammy-winning singer was quick to note that she still didn’t speak the language well. A point her singing largely proved!

For her obvious happiness to be performing with the Israeli rock star, the audience gave her an A for effort. And for her vocal ability and just presence on stage, a clear I.A!

Large hat tip to Jordana Horn.
