Matisyahu sings ‘One Day’ with boy fighting cancer

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Let’s put the Matisyahu beard saga aside for just a moment. The hasidic performer made headlines this week by granting a wish to a sweet little boy named Luke Weber.

Luke, who is currently fighting cancer, went up on stage at the Tarrytown Music Hall in New York and performed the song “One Day” together with Matisyahu. And he rocked it.

It seemed pretty appropriate for the two to sing “One Day,” a song about hope when things don’t go the way people plan (lyrics here). The duet was pulled off with help from Chai Lifeline, a Jewish organization whose mission is to “restore the light of childhood to children whose innocence ended when life-threatening or lifelong illness was diagnosed.”
