Regina sings Madonna
When you think Jewish musicians, Madonna isn’t usually the first that comes to mind.
But at tonight’s kickoff gala for the two-week New York Jewish Music and Heritage Festival, songs by the Material Girl now known as Esther will be performed alongside those of Randy Newman, Billy Joel, George and Ira Gershwin and Carole King.
Beginning at 8 p.m., the “Great Jewish Artists Perform Great Jewish Composers” program at the 92nd Street Y features a lineup that includes New York singer-songwriter Regina Spektor performing Madonna and Leonard Cohen‘s tunes, while reggae artist Matisyahu plays Shlomo Carlebach and jazzman Uri Caine takes on Aaron Copland.
