One Day – Matisyahu

First, to show my complete ignorance I always thought this singer’s name was Modest Yahoo. But this makes much more sense.

It might seem strange to have reggae and religion mixed but really a lot of Bob Marley’s song’s have a religious bent to me at least. Matisyahu also has a kind of rap like sound in the way he sings. I love the combination. It comes together in a very touching way.

He has a great voice, it is rich even when he is rapping and he seems able to hold longer notes which isn’t as common it seems for male singers.

I love the message of this song. It makes me a little teary in a happy and hopeful way. Like if we could all just get on the same page and realize we all want the same thing.
