Reaching deep into her Jewish roots, Rachel specializes in classical Jewish and modern Israeli music. A world-class mezzo soprano, Rachel's hauntingly beautiful songs express such a deep spiritual quality that she performs for religious Jews and Christian audiences alike, all of whom have been inspired by the richness and depth of her music. Rachel sings about the Lord she loves, introducing many for the first time to the soulful quality of Hebrew music.
Her first CD, Hebrew Psalms of Light (2008), has been very well received; the enthusiasm in fact, encouraged her to use her unique gifts to build bridges between Christian and Jewish communities. Over the past 4 years, Rachel has given about four hundred concerts in the United States and Western and Eastern Europe including Ireland, Switzerland, Denmark, Germany, Russia, Finland, Slovakia and Italy.
Her second album, "Singing In The Dark", will be poems set to music, written by Jews during the Holocaust. The expected release date is May 2014. Stunning and spiritual, Rachel’s singing—rising from the depths of her soul, cannot but help touch others in theirs.
Still fundraising for my new album, "Singing In The Dark!"
To remember. To celebrate. To have faith. To conquer. These are only some of the reasons I am producing "Singing In The Dark"- featuring songs written by Jews while they were in the concentration camps during the Holocaust. This will be the first album of Holocaust music to ever be produced in English. Could these poems give us courage and hope in our darkest of times? I believe so!
Producing a high quality music album and working with the best in the business is not a cheap endeavor! However, thankfully the people I am working with on this album have been very gracious to me and have given me a generous discount for their services because of their excitment in what I am singing about. I have made it so that people who want to contribute to this album can sponsor a song on the album which includes everything to make the song a reality- the recording of the vocals, musicians, studio time, traveling costs, etc. This comes out to $2,500.00 per song which is what I need to finish the production of this album. If you are interested in sponsoring a song for my new album, "Singing In The Dark," please do contact me at (307) 389-8457 or write me a message on the contact page. I AM LOOKING FOR 7 MORE SPONSORS! If you would like to choose which song you sponsor, I will be happy to talk with you and let you know more about each song. I REALLY NEED MORE FUNDS TO FINISH THIS ALBUM. Please share this news with anyone you feel would donate to this project. Every penny is very much appreciated! :)
