WATCH: “La La Passover” by New York Yeshiva Students Y-Studs a Cappella
Passover is around the corner, and with that comes another exciting vocal production by Y-Studs A Cappella. From the group that brought you a Passover twist on Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” this year the emerging all-male group from Upper Manhattan collaborated with award-winning A Cappella guru and Los Angeles native, Robert Dietz (NBC’s “The Sing Off”, A Cappella Academy), to produce a Passover spin of this year’s “second best picture,” La La Land.
In collaboration with some of the best A Cappella producers in the business, the Y-Studs have produced a colorful and theatrical music video that parodies the movie’s opening number, “Another Day of Sun.” The video dramatizes and pokes fun at the often overlooked and daunting task of Passover preparations through song and dance in a local kosher supermarket where the pre-holiday stress unfolds. Watch this talented group step up their dancing skills as they show you ‘how Passover is done.’
Y-Studs A Cappella gained international attention in 2015 with their release of an A Cappella cover video of Gad Elbaz’s “Hashem Melech” (based on Khaled’s “C’est la vie”).
They followed up with “Seder”, a Passover-inspired parody of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, which received well over a million views on social media and was covered by CBS, TIME, and more.
This past Hanukkah, the group covered The Chainsmokers’ “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Closer” and reflected the holiday’s themes of hope, renewal, and perseverance.
