The Jewish music industry is blessed with many superstars. As one of the most popular stars in Jewish music, Benny Friedman has made a name for himself, not by being a member of one of Jewish music’s royal families, but by consistently proving himself to be talented, versatile and one of the nicest people in the Jewish music business.
Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, Benny’s musical career began at age thirteen when he began performing at small local events and audiences were mesmerized by his dazzling voice. He rose to prominence on the contemporary Jewish music scene with his first album, “Taamu” in 2009. Since then Benny has released 7 solo albums, 10 singles and has been featured on countless other projects and concerts around the world. His biggest hit to date is the song “Ivri Anochi” (I’m a Jew and I’m Proud), which the music video has over 19 Million views on YouTube.
Benny views his music as a Shlichus (outreach) tool, with the goal of inspiring people through music, and drawing them closer to Hashem.
