Apparently the world of Jewish a capella is more competitive than you think.
After achieving overnight success with “Candlelight,” the Maccabeats, Yeshiva University’s all-male a capella group, is back with another surefire YouTube hit, “Purim Song” (no points for creative naming, guys!). This time, the story of Esther, Ahasverosh, Haman and Mordechai is set to Pink’s “Raise Your Glass.”
But a week before the Maccabeats’ new song was released, an Israeli (and co-ed) a capella group, The Fountainheads, debuted their own Purim-themed version of the same Pink song, titled “Raise Your Masks” (points for the more creative name!).
(See both songs below.)
