Back in August we started a series profiling up-and-coming musicians and singers who focus on Jewish music in all of its forms. Today we're highlighting Nachas Baldinger, a wedding singer who goes by his first name, Nachas, whose claim to fame was his appearance in the Jewish Star singing competition.
Nachas has shown a wide range of musical talent, singing in Hebrew, Yeshivish, and English. He is offering a free download of his debut song, Nachas, from http://nachasmusic.com/NACHAS_the_Single.mp3.
But what we found most interesting about Baldinger was the ease with which he drops the Yeshivish accent and transitions to a country music genre, as exemplified by his cover of the patriotic song God Bless the USA originated by Lee Greenwood.
Here are two videos, the first a look behind the scenes as he gets ready to sing HaTov v'Hameitiv, and the second a rousing rendition of God Bless the USA. Enjoy!
