A Hassidic singer gave the world a reason to “rise up” with these stunning vocals

by Leah Rosenberg

Hassidic singer Shulem Lemmer has made his name known. All you have to do is hear this one song and you’ll understand why.

Hassidic Singer has the Voice of an Angel

Wow. Do you have any other words for the voice of this Hassidic singer? It can leave a person speechless! Shulem Lemmer is unique. He is completely dedicated to his Jewish faith. Yet he is also very worldly. Despite the fact that this song is not originally sung by a Jewish singer, Lemmer connects to its message. Its words have deep meaning and relay Jewish concepts.

You would never expect Lemmer to look the way he does if you just heard his voice. And that should teach everyone a lesson not to judge. You never truly know about people just by looking at them. You don’t know their talents and skills; their worries and their fears. You don’t know what they truly value deep down or what their dreams are.


The lyrics, by Andra Day and Jennifer Decilveo, are truly beautiful. When life feels like things are falling apart and you’re tired, this song can be extremely uplifting. The chorus is as follows:

And I’ll rise up I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
And I’ll rise up
High like the waves I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousands times again
For you.

It is a song that reminds us that friendship, love, and hope, can help a person through challenging times.
