With over 3 million views on Facebook of their joint YouTube video “Shed a Little Light,” join internationally-acclaimed A cappella and vocal play groups, The Maccabeats and Naturally 7, for their first ever live concert together! Using only their voices, these talented men will provide a spiritual, celebratory concert in tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr.

Every instrument sound Naturally 7 sings is created by the human voice including the rhythm of drums, guitars, horns, flutes – you name it. They’ve toured and performed the world over with luminaries as diverse as Quincy Jones, Michael Buble’, and Ludacris. Their now famous Paris subway performance of the song “Feel It (In the Air Tonight)" has received over four and a half million hits on YouTube alone and became a Top three chart success in France, Belgium and South Africa. Read more about the background of Naturally 7.

Enter the Maccabeats, formed in 2007 as Yeshiva University’s student vocal group that has emerged as both a Jewish music and A cappella phenomenon. With over 20 million views on YouTube, numerous TV and worldwide appearances from Alabama to New Zealand and everywhere in between, they connect with fans of all backgrounds and ages using nothing more than the unadulterated human voice, a clean-cut presentation, and a little Jewish humor. The Maccabeats sold out the Gordon Center for Channukah in 2015.

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday, Naturally 7 and the Maccabeats will perform two shows here, together, for the first time ever – live!

Before each show, join Jewish Volunteer Connection in the Gordon lobby assembling hand warmers to give to seniors and first responders in our community to help keep them warm this winter. JVC will also be collecting used shoes to benefit Knafayim, an organization that provides free and low cost counseling services to the Jewish community.
