On March 16, 2010, the PS22 Chorus gave an epic performance at the 92nd Street Y with the great Matisyahu. Needless to say, I had been dying to get ahold of this performance ever since, and was ecstatic to finally receive a copy from Matisyahu’s manager when the kids performed with Matis last month at the ONEXONE Gala. Not only is it always a thrill to see and hear the kids professionally recorded, this particular performance featured the kids at their best with not only the genius of Matisyahu, but also accompanied by DP Dave Holmes of the Dub Trio on acoustic guitar! Playing with him and Matis was an inspiration, and I think we all enjoyed improvising our respective parts and bouncing off of each other’s ideas.
We were actually only slated to do “One Day” for this performance, but we all recognized magic was happening on “On Nature” at the rehearsal earlier that day (footage previously posted). Matis was cool enough to insist on us doing that one as well! Messale, who actually was a Matisyahu fan already, spontaneously stepped in to sing with Matis at the rehearsal, a bit unsure of the words, but sounding awesome! So on the bus ride to the event later that afternoon, I had him listening over and over to the first verse on my iPod, so he could have a moment with Matis. And what a moment it was!
This was just one of those performances where everything came together perfectly, so deepest thanks to the 92nd Street Y and of course to Matisyahu & his management for giving us permission to post these two videos!

Foreign Affairs columnist for The New York Times Tom Friedman is the writer the public looks to for the straight talk and reliable information it needs about the world — especially when events seem too menacing to comprehend and policy discussions are clouded in a smokescreen of politics and posturing. Covering many of the monumental stories of recent decades, he has won three Pulitzer Prizes and been called the countrys best newspaper columnist by Vanity Fair.
His new book, just out in paperback with updated information, is Hot, Flat and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution — and How It Can Renew America . This is a #1 New York Times bestseller. His previous bestseller, The World is Flat, has sold more than two million copies. His other bestsellers include Longitudes and Attitudes: The World in the Age of Terrorism, The Lexus and the Olive Tree and From Beirut to Jerusalem, which serves as a basic text on the Middle East in colleges and universities nationwide and won the National Book Award.
Friedman appears in his own segment, Toms Journal, on The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer and is a frequent guest on programs such as Face the Nation and Charlie Rose. His TV documentaries, Searching for the Roots of 9/11, The Other Side of Outsourcing and Addicted to Oil, have aired on the Discovery Channel.
