Student A Cappella Group’s “Candlelight” Video Goes Viral
Just in time for Chanukah, Yeshiva University’s popular student a cappella group, the Maccabeats, have released their latest single, “Candlelight.”
Their music video, edited by YU alumnus and former presidential fellow, Uri Westrich, has quickly gone viral on YouTube, amassing more than 2 million views, and has been featured on CBS, CNN and NBC’s Today Show.
“It’s been really exciting,” said Maccabeat Josh Jay, a Yeshiva College graduate currently enrolled at Einstein Medical School. “Before it came out, we joked about the video going viral, but I don’t think any of us expected it to be quite this popular. It’s great to be able to reach so many people and spread the message of Channukah.”
