ABOUT NESHAMA CARLEBACH
A superstar in Jewish entertainment, Neshama Carlebach is a soulful singer whose magical voice and message of hope and love have inspired audiences around the world. Daughter of the legendary “singing rabbi” Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, Neshama is a six-time Grammy Entrant who has sung on the Broadway stage and sold over a million records. Neshama will appear with her band and the Glory to God Singers led by the Rev. Milton Vann of New York.
As a teenager in 1994, Neshama appeared on stage with her famous father, breaking the Orthodox Jewish prohibition against women singing before men. A few months later, he suffered a fatal heart attack. She finished his engagements and launched her own career. Now a star in her own right, she carries on her father’s legacy while charting her own unique course. Whether performing with an African-American gospel choir – as she will here – or at a climate change or Holocaust anniversary event, she sees music as a way to heal the world. “I believe we can heal through music. That’s the voice I want to sing to,” she says.
“When Neshama Carlebach sings, she brings a bit of heaven down to earth.” –Washington Jewish Week
